Frank R. Thorns '30 
Appointed Campus 
Business Manager 

Claims Continuous Policy 
and Management Will 
Be Greatest Benefits 

Thi- Joint Executive Committee of 
Campus Business Management at Wil- 
liams College appointed Frank K. Thorns, 
Jr. '30 resident business manager at a 
meeting on May 15. 

Manager 'Phonis, who has established 
his office in the suite previously occupied 
by the British War Kelief Society on 
Spring Street and who fornialK- assumed 
his duties on June 1, yesterday issued the 
following statement to The RECORD: 
Thorns Statement 
"A glance at the duties and functions 
expected to be assumed by The Campus 
Business Management will give a small 
idea of the enormous task and problems to 
be solved in getting under way. Ob- j 
viously, a choice of activities must be 
made and the Joint Executive Committee 
has been working with the manager in 
determining our starting point. 

"It is our hope and expectation that 
real linancial savings can be effected 
through the Campus Business Manage- 
ment for members of all the social organi- 
zations. At the same time, it must be 
recognized that we are starting from 
scratch and our progress will be slow, 
painfully slow. 

'Greatest Single Benefit' 
"It is our opinion that the greatest 
single benefit to be derived from insti- 
tuting this business management — even 
above actual dollar savings — will be the 
establishment of a continuity of policy and 
management for the social units. I'nder 
the present set-up, full responsibility is 
put in the hands of the house treasurer 
who very often has bareh' time to learn 
his duties before he leaves the position and 
turns over the reins to another who repeats 
the process. 

Uniformed Accounting 
"It is my personal belief thai this 
continuity can be effected best by the 
adoption of a uniform system of account- 
ing, accompanied by the introduction of 
carefully drawn budgets with which actual

1946 - As You 
Enter Rushing

Army Plans Enlistment of College 
Undergraduates for Reserve Corps 

Students Will Be Permitted to Graduate 
If They Pass War Department Exam 

In a letter to Acting President Richard 
A. Newhall from the Adjutant General of 
the United States Arnn , the War Depart- 
ment revealed last month a tentative plan 
for the enlistment of college students in the 
Reserve Corps of the Army at the rate of 
80,000 per year. Similar to the Navy's 
V-1 program, the new Army plan, which 
includes enlistment for the Air Corps, is 
designed to insure a future source of 
qualified officer candidates from the ranks 
of the nation's colleges. 

1 Man Already In 

Althuugh the plan has not yet been 
formally announced by the Army, Acting 
President Newhall made it clear that those 
in imminent danger of the draft will be 
considered for immediate enrollment. 
One student, C. Gorham Phillips '43, has 
already been sworn in, and three others, 
David T. Andrews, George Goodwin, Jr., 
and John R. Harris '43 have received 
preliminary recommendations. Assistant 
Professor Samuel A. Matthews has been 
appointed college liaison officer to handle 
such emergency cases, as well as to answer 
any other questions which may arise. 
Exam Required 

All those who enlist in the new pre- 
induction program will be required to 
take a qualifying examination, probably 
of the objective type, similar to that used 
by the Navy. Students who pass this 
test will be permitted to continue their 
college course in an inactive reserve status, 
but those who fail to attain the required 
level will be ordered to active duty in an 
enlisted status at the end of the semester 
then in session. 

Candidates who fulfill all other re- 
quirements will be selected on the basis of 
their scholastic records. Provision has 
been made for students specially qualified 
for necessary advanced study, research 
work, or as faculty replacements to con- 
tinue their studies on an inactive duty 
status upon recommendation by the college 
authorities and approval by the War 

Although the specific details of the plan 
have not been announced, it is based on the 
general principle that the large majority

Dr. Locke Outlines 
Required Athletics 

Baseball Season Insured 
for Summer ; Lacrosse, 
'Spring' Football Added 

Declaring college programs aiming to 
teach students to swim underwater with 
iron pipes under burning oil and the like 
to be "perfect nonsense — for propaganda", 
Dr. Edwin A. Locke, director of health 
and athletics, yesterday announced a new 
athletic program for Williams based on the 
ideals of physical litness of the college 
student rather than of the fighting man. 
He further pointed out, however, that 
"all the qualities wanled for a soldier can 
be found in a well balanced and planned 
sports schedule." 

3 Weekly Periods 

The basis of such a schedule for Williams 
will be three periods of compulsory ath- 
letics per week for each undergraduate. 
Dr. Locke stated that this was presented 
with the hope that the students would 
take it upon themselves to carry on some 
sort of a personal athletic program on the 
other three days and cooperate with the 
idea of keeping fit for increased efficiency 
in schoolwork and for subsequent harden- 
ing for some branch of the nation's services. 

For the basic physical training course, 
the incoming class has already been 
classified into four different categories so 
that men of approximately the same 
physical development would be placed 
together and advance most rapidly. The 
plans for the upperclassmen will be less 
restricted with a wide range of organized 
sports to choose from. 

Baseball Stressed 

Foremost of these summer sports will 
be baseball, carried on by both varsity and 
freshman squads until the end of August. 
Although the schedule will be necessarily 
limited by the small number of colleges in 
full summer session, arrangements have 
been made to supplement the regular 
teams on the roster with professional and 
semi-pro teams in the hope that there may 
be "a game on Weston Field every 
Saturday during the season." This Dr. 
Locke believes, will be a tremendous boost 
to college morale. 

'46 To Play Lacrosse 

Baseball will be accomf)anied by both 
freshman as well as varsity lacrosse. 
Some freshman track will be encouraged 
and tennis and golf will be offered to those 
who would like to participate. In con- 
junction with all this, a sort of spring 
practice will be conducted at Weston 
Field for the football squad. Arrange- 
ments have been made, and an auxiliary 
set of football goalposts have been erected 
on the far end of the outfield so that

Phi Beta Kappa Elects 
Eight Men From 1943 

The following members of the class 
of 1943 were elected to Phi Beta 
Kappa at the end of their junior year: 
Robert N. Branson, Edward F. Engle, 
Robert B. Kittredge, Walter P. 
Kosar, Frederick M. Myers, William 
F. Nicol, C. Gorham Phillips, and C. 
Perrie Phillips. These men will be 
formally inducted into the Williams 
chapter of Phi Beta Kappa some 
time in July. 

Members of the class of 1942 who 
were elected to Phi Beta Kappa at the 
end of their senior year follow: George 
C. Bryan, William J. Fuchs, and 
John G. Torrey. 

Waiting Jobs — If you talk waiting 
jobs lu any house, you and the fraternity 
have crossed the lines of legality. If you 
need a waiting job, everj- house knows it 
and bears this in mind when tendering a 

"Bounce Session" — In this meeting, 
the fraternity rushing chairmen and 
arbiter adjust their final choices and 
preferences with yours. It is possible 
for a man to go from his first to his sixth 
choice; consequently a freshman should 
list n(i house on his final bid acceptance 
card unless he would like to be in thai 

"Leg Man" — If you are approached by 
a member of \our own class in the interests 
of any fraternity, you will be dealing with a 
"leg man," a form of illegal rushing. This 
individual is a relative or best friend of a 
fraternity upperclassman and is trying to 
"line up" a delegation. Of course fresh- 
man friends not "representing" a fraternity 
can legally try to influence your choice, 
and there is no reason that friends cannot 
decide to choose the same fraternity. 

Refreshments— Candy and cigarettes 
may be served during any rushing period. 
Light refreshments may be served in the 
final period each night, but beer and ale 
only during the preferential date, from 
9:00 to 10:00 Thursday evening, July 2. 

Garfield Club — Every freshman re- 
ceives a final bid to the Club, whose 
membership includes men who have been 
offered no bids and men who have refused 
fraternity bids. 

"Spring Streeters" — This is the term 
given to a man who refuses to accept final

197 Freshmen Attend 
Orientation Program 
in Jesup Auditorium 

Baxter Speaks Friday 

The first freshman class to enter Wil- 
liams in World War 11 deseited interior 
decorating and junior ad\isers Wednesday 
to begin four days of meetings ar.d con- 
ferences designed to acquaint them with 
the ways of college life. Meeting to- 
gether lor the first time in Jesup Hall 
Wednesday evening, 197 members of the 
class of 1946 were greeted by Acting 
President Richard A. Newhall and a group 
of administrative representatives. 
Set Stage 

In a series of short addresses, James E. 
Bullock, assistant professor of physical 
education. Dean Halfdan (Iregersen, Dr. 
Edwin A. Locke, director of health and 
athletics. Treasurer Charles D. Make- 
peace, Dr. Newhall, College A. 
Grant Noble, and Director of Admissions 
Thomas J. Wood welcomed the freshmen 
and set the stage for tonight's meeting 
with President James P. Baxter, 111. 

Rushing Chairman Alan G. James '43 
explained the mechanics of the Williams 
rushing system at a meeting yesterday 
morning, while the freshmen convened 
again in the afternoon with representatives 
of the various student organizations who 
emphasized the value of planned extra- 
curricular activity. 

Baxter Tea 

Meetings today included c mtinuation 
of the freshman orientation program with 
emphasis on an umlerstonding of the 
library system. Tonight at 8:00 President 
Baxter will address the freshmen i!i the 
Jesup Hall Auditorium r.nd r.ftcr the 
general college assembly at 1:30 p. m. 
tomorrow, Dr. Baxter will greit the class 
of 1946 at the annual freshman tea. 

Statistics released by Mr. Wood yester- 
day indicate that from fifty to sixty 
additional members of 1946 are expected 
to enter in October. The entire incoming 
grou|j re]irescnts nineteci states in 
addition to Columbia, Great Britain and 
the Territory of Hawaii. New ^■ork again 
leads with seventy-six freshnie!i, while 
forty-one conv.' from the state of Massa- 
chusetts and twenty-six from Pennsyl- 
vania. Illinois leads ths states outside 
the Eastern area with thirteen members 
of 1946.

Combined figures on the t\\o groups 
reveal that seventy-eight students, repre- 
senting thirty-one p;r cent of the class,

Afternoon Dates, Earlier Hours, No Dinners, 
Important Innovations in Rushing Procedure 

With the reappearance of free cigarettes 
and afterdinner mints, which perennially 
turn up with a new crop of freshmen, the 
1942 Rushing Week, no less war-geared 
and streamlined than the curriculum or 
the athletic progran,, officially opens 
tomorrow night. Though g,en('ral aims 
and specific tecf.'inq jefe undijyliit-tlly , re- 
main the sariie.'tho pnicedufe and ilLachfi}- 
ery of thi^ , year's rushing progi'f^fri hf\ve 
sustained lieveral direct changt^.' for 
reasons of economy and efficiency. . ••;■', 
Dinner Dates Out | '. , , * 

The mcst outstanding custom to falliby 
the waysj'Je, the victim of cconomJ^.1s^'^^v;■ 
dinner ■ date, one of the most fHipulV' 
features of forrrier R-jshins Weeks; In !in 
effort to eiiminats all^iili'fssf^ntUI cdsta, the 
Rushing Coriimjtt^fl Jias, cli^1i^aIled this 
part of the first two periods and placed the 
starting time for the evenings' activities 
at 7:00. 

The one exception to this new starting 
time in the first two periods is the Sunday 
program, in itself a complete innovation. 
Three one-hour dates, starting at 2:00 in 
the afternoon will be followed by a three 
hours interim, and then another three 
hours of rushing from 8:00 to 11:00 in the 
evening. Beginning Monday and carry- 
ing right through the remainder of the 

first two periods, the dates will start at 
7:00 and end at 10:00. 

Shorter 2nd Dates 

In order to comply with this earlier 
quitting time, the second period dates will 
be half an hour shorter than in previous 
years, thereby not only skipping the ex- 
pensive dinner date but allowing freshmen 
to return to their books at 1 :00. 

Because of the widely publicized short- 
^ages of rubber and gasoline, only Delta Phi 
,will call for its guests in the truck. Phi 
Sigma Kappa and Psi Upsilon will abandon 
.their custom of picking up freshmen in 
front of Chapin Hall and 1946 will be re- 
quired to walk to these houses. 
Ouotaa Only Nine 

These changes and exceptions are not 
the entire picture of Rushing Week by any 
means. If anything, freshmen will be 
more nervous and upperclassmen more 
eager with the shrinking of fraternity 
quotas to nine. As many first year men 
will confuse Delta Psi and Delta Phi as 
before. Old tried and proven rushing 
stories will be rehearsed and reused, the 
same refreshments will be served in much 
the same way, and dispatched with the 
same fervor. 

By Friday, the arbiter will have ap-

Patience of Enraged Men 

The pollcgc \vc will know tlii.s suiiinu'r will be a new William.s, just 
as the world which is emerging from this war will be new. .\iid in the 

summer of 1942 we can still guide the evolution of that new Williams, 
just as on the larger .scale the United Nations still po.s.sess (lie brain 
and brawn to chart the course of the new world. 

This iiews])Hi)er must foeus its editorial aim on the moulding of the 
new Williams, although never for a moment will its editorial writers j it's litic stniiding in the niicldle of S])rin)> 
forget that events in Williamstown today will jjroduce a small but I Street (and liere wc lapse into tlif tongue 
integral part of the new world which the I'nite.l Nations, not Hitler, I "' ""^ °''' '^"""'•'y) """^ K"'""-"'"' 

(Patterson Pinby takes over this column, 
following in the footsteps of De Gustibus' 
founder, Fairfax Weatherjield). 

Freshman, eh? We thought so from 
the start. We could tell by the way you 
gaped at the tall buildings, by the way you 
admired Hopkins Hall, by the way you fell 
for George Rudnick's "Beautiful fresh- 
men" line, and besides, you're new around 
here. Well that's the way it goes. Any- 
thing for a laugh, that Dean's Office. 

The nation's at war; Williams men are 
leaving on the 8:16 pack train for the 
armed service almost daily; and what does 
the Dean's Ollice do? They bring in a 
freshman class. 

You can't tell us they're not going to 
have a helluva good time figuring out what 
they're going to call you. "Class of '46" 
won't do, and they should know it, because 
you won't graduate in '46, and besides, 
they've got to take those SO or 60 vaca- 
tionists who're entering later into con- 
sideration. We've already figured it out 
(send ten gallons of gas for ourliooklet. 
The Pinby Plan for Naming Classes That 
Graduate When They Shouldn't), but not 
that Dean's Office; they're going to muse 
over it for a while, get all the fun out of the 
thing they can. 

Hcsides.they know you fellows will ha\'e 
a freshman-sophomore riot, and that's 
always good for some amusement. They 
know you'll riot, because '4.S rioted last 
year, and '44 a couple of years ago. They 
know, too, you'll find out that there are 
more sophomores this year than there are 
freshmen, but they feel that won't bother 
you, because you still don't know what 

must fashion. 

Last year it was difficult to concentrate on the job at \Viiiiams, be- 
cause our course then was not clear, and because those of iis who were 
convinced that a shooting war was the only means of saving ilemocracy 
found the President and Congress slow to take the offensive. 

This year concentration will be even more (iifficiilt to attiiin. Upper- 
clas.smen will find their activities, .scholastic, social, and extracurricular, 
disru])ted, jierhaps ruined by losses to the arnieil forces. Freshmen will 
find orientation dinibly c()ni])licated by the ab.sence of a summer rest and 
by the discovery that colleges treat freshmen as fully matured citizens. 
There will be those who will believe that they should join uj) now, rather 
than wailing for graduation, (le.s|)ite authoritative advice to the cmitrary. 
Uncertain draft status, fraternity financial i)r()l)leins, college work under 
.suininer conditions, di.sheiirtening news from battle fronts are lint a few 
of the forces which can reduce our efficiency in Williamstown now. 

And in the midst of these problems, advice will be free-flowing, 
contradictory, often stupidly inaccurate. Xo man will know all the 
answers, but every man .should know this, .should feel this .so deeply 
that no unexpected event can stampede him into hysteria: There can be 
no i)roblcm, here or elsewhere, which we cannot meet and .solve by calm 
intelligence, careful decision, and then swift action. 

For exaini)le, men .swamjjed by scholastic difficulties have the new 
booklet, Effective Study of Elementary Courses, the faculty and administra- 
tion, fellow undergraduates, and other sources of help. Men who 
to graduate but who arc near induction under the draft will have the; Massachus.»tts." This kind of thi 

opportunity to try out for Army, Navy, and Marine Corps training pro 
grams. Fraternities, hard-hit financially, will have an extremely com- 
petent, far-sighted head of Campus Business Management to aid them 
in the fight for survival. Compulsory athletics, if properly administered, 
will deveh)p i)hy.sically .sound undergraduates. .\n(l in many other ways 
Williams can prepare cai)able leaders for the armed forces. 

All these ojjportunities will be meaningless, however, if we lose our 
sanity, our breadth of vision, or our fight. We must avoid the ridiculous 
heights of which lead Americans to believe that buying a few 
war stamjjs, cheering |)ara(les, and looking at imported heroes already 
have Hitler defeated. At all times, to paraphrase Mr, Newhall's recent 
as.sertion, wc must exhibit the patience of enraged men, confident that 
no small disappointment or uncxi)ected .set-back will swing us hy.sterically 
from our goals. 

And after it's all over, and the damage is 
all done, there are the bills to be sent out. 
Of course, the Treasurer's Office gets most 
of the fun then, but the Deans all troop 
down to the P. O. to watch the expressions 
on the faces of the freshmen when they 
find they have to foot the bill. It's pretty 
amusing, all in all. 

And th.>n, they get a kick out of seeing 
new students, students who haven't 
mastered this complicated business of 
being a Williams man. They like to see 
some naive freshmtm stand up at the first 
football game of the season yelling, "Come 
on Purple!" when everyone knows the 
typical Williams man, conservative to the 
last page of his income tax report, rarely 
raises his voice aliove a "I5ra\'o" for any- 
thing but the Amherst and Weslcyan 
games, which two affairs, beitig traditional 
and all that, invariably merit loud 
"Ray's," interspersed wiili .selected l)ars 
of "Yard by Yard" and otluT rowdy songs. 

And tlicy're still looking for the chap 
who answers his friends' "Oh, you go to 
W'illi.ims and Mary," not with a ready, 
indulgent sneer as, anyone knows, he 
should, but says, "No, it's Williams

Schram as WCA Head 

New Program Will Give 
Authority to Freshmen 

Owing to the induction into the Army 
of William C. Schrani '4.?, recently presi- 
dent of the William Christian Association, 
Leonard C. Thompson 'Ai has now become 
the head of that organization. Ihompson 
announced yesterday that a new vice- 
president will be chosen, from among 
those now on the cabinet, to fill the post 
which he has just left vacant. 

In ortler that the freshmen who intend 
to join the W.C.A. ma\' now take a more 
active part in the organization, Thompson 
declared that a freshman cabinet will be 
created. Although it will be under the 
authority of the senior cabinet, the new 
group will direct all activities with which 
the Class of I'Mfi will be directly concern- 
ed. Up to the present time, the new 
W.C.A. head announced, freshman mem- 
bers of the W.C.A. have been limited 
almost enlirib In Hoys' Club work. 
Plan Farm Aid 

Also on the W.C.A. schedule for (he 
summer is plan to aid local farnuns by 
obtaining x'ohinteers from the college to 
help harvest the crops. Many local 
farmers have been eNtremely interested in 
the W.C.A.'s suggestion, and will guar- 
anlei' Iransporlation to and from farms 
within a ten-mile radius. Although 
Thompson dedaii'd that the volunteer 
laljorers have not yet been assured P.'T. 
credit, he feels certain that some such 
arrangement onild probably be made. 

Work with the Hoys' Club this summer 
will be ciineerned principalh wilh ac(|uir- 
iiig student counsellors for the Hoys' 
Club camp on Northwest Hill, near the 
1)1(1 CCC camp, 'The camp will function 
throughout the summer, with vacations 
of two-weeks' duration being provided for 
each memljer of the Hoys' Club. 

Also being scheduled by the W.C.A. 
tabinet are a series of camp suppers, at 
which visiting speakers will lead informal

Special attention has been given to the 
WOC cabiti on Mt. Williams, a s|iur of 
Ml. (ireylock, which was built in 19,U in 
memory of Norman W. Harris '31. De- 
signed to acc()ninu)date eight, the cabin is 
located in the center of the network of 
trails which the CCC has cut on the 
Greylock ke.servation. The Notch Road 
to the sutiimit and several other trails 
provide access from Willianistown, while 
the .Appalachian Club's Maine-to-Georgia 
route passes nearby. 

Repairs and new equipment have also 
been added to thi' Berlin Cabin, a smaller 
hut to the south of Willianistown on the 
slopes of Berlin Mt. It is near the 
Taconic Ridge Trail, leading to the Wil- 
liams Caves and Snow Hole, spots hallow- 
ed by the shades of more than a hundred 
years of Willi:inis hikers. 

Membership, under the resolutions 
adopted last year, will be open to under- 
graduates and faculu alike without com- 
petition. The work of the organization 
will be carried on by the i iinmittees, and 
from their personnel the E ; cutive Com- 
mittee will choose future ofliei ;s.

reports on operations. 

"Concentration on the study and intro- 
duction of a uniform system by the 
Campus Business Management will pro- 
duce no spectacular results in a short time. 
In our situation, where there are almost as 
many bookkeeping systems as there are 
houses, it is hard, tedious work to convert 
to one unifiu'in s\stem of accoimting. 

Comparisons Simplified 

"By suggesting this action, we are not 
necessarily condemning the systems now 
being used, but with all houses operating 
uniformly, audits can be completed more 
rapidly, comparisons between houses are 
relatively simple, treasurers and auditors 
can help each other because they are 
familiar with each other's forms, and 
reporting can be accomplished without 
adjustment to a grimp of systems. 

"The Campus Business Management 
idea has been embraced here for one year 
from the date of its inception. Frankly, 
I look for no miracles in this first year, and 
hope none are expected. However, the 
cooperation of alumni, undergraduates, 
and house stewards has already been 
evidenced plainly, and is sincerely' appre- 
ciated. It is my strong feeling that we can 
and will make this venture prove to be of 
real, fundamental benelit to the social 
organizations and to \\ illianis College."

Secretary of State, however, may call all 
members of the Enlisted R.-s^'rve to active

No detailed course retiuirements have 
been laid down, but applicants are en- 
couraged to take a \'ear of college math 
and a \ear of physics, though this is not 
delinitely required. The Army will not 
demand that a student major in a science, 
and the examination will lay no great 
stress on scientific subjects. S^-cretary of

Although two games will be played with 
Amherst, there will not be an official

no ball team. The other three games 
are with Dartmouth and Providence. The

year, rallying for a 4-3 decision on April 24. 

Four Men Lont 

Only four members of this spring's 
Little Three championship team have 
been lost, but these vacancies will be hard 
to fill. Captain Ciunnar Hagstrom leaves 
an infield berth, while the timely hitting 
and sterling outficlding of Hob Swain 
will be sorely missed. 

Greatest blow to the team is the loss of 
pitchers Satch Lare and Ed Callahan, top- 
notch right-handers. Lare, who trans-

Draft Bulletin Widens 
Field for Deferment 

'Vital Occupation' Class 
Will Be Reconsidered 

Deferment is seen for many college 
students in a recent bulletin issued by lh(! 
Selective Service Board declaring short- 
ages in "critical occupatit)ns". These 
"critical occupations" include, along with 
chemistry, physics, geophysics, and other 
scientific vocations, some phases of 
economics and accounting. 

Sent to local boards and interested 
agencies by draft-director Hershey, Occu- 
pational Bulletin No. 10 is official on the 
subject of scientific and specialized per- 
sonnel and is to be effective immediately. 
This action is to counteract the serious 
deficiency in skilled men vital to the 
national war effort.

The shortage was brought to light by

Specific Personnel in Washington, 1). C,

'Williams Education Is

I'raisinn llie "tremendous good sense of;

Jann-s P. liaMcr, 3rd, took time ofT fnnii j 
his governmenl duties last Saturday- Id 
tell an enlhusiaMic student body assembled 
in Chapiii Hall lliat, "whether we know it \ 
or not, we are in Itondage to great de**ds." 
Promising thai "in August I will be in 
Williamslown much more than 1 have 
been," the president emphasized that a 
successful Williams education is a vital 
contribution to the defense of this demo- 
cracy, which is dependeni on ils youth for 
post-war leadership. 

Won't 'Let Down' 

But he added that he was not worried 
about any tendency to "let down," 
because of "the admirable good sense 
displayed by VVilliains undergraduates at 
the outbreak of war, when this campus 
was as well prepared a^ any group in the 
nation." Such iiUelllijcnt foresight will

Hiking Joins PT Sports 
For Duration of Term 

College Sets Precedent 
by Backing WOC Trips 

Mountain-climbing and camping, under 
the joint direction of the Department of 
Health and Athletics and the Williams 
Outing Club, were added last week to the 
physical training program for the lirsi 
time in the history of the college. During 
the summer semester, hiking of various 
sorts will be one of the five sports available 
to the student body. 

At pre.sent, the Outing Club has laid 
plans for two hikes in the latter part of 
exch week, plus weekend trips to the 
cabins. An undergraduate may satisfx- 
the requirements of the new physical 
training program by two hikes per week 
on any days, along with the necessary 

Hikes will be initiated by upperclassmen 
in the Outing Club who are familiar with 
the trails. Faculty participation is also 
being encouraged. Information about 
each day's hike will be run in the Adviser 
at noon. 

Strong student support of the mountain 
trips seems likely, according to William C. 
Brewer, Jr. '43, president of the WOC. 
Brewer recalled the important part out- 
door living had played in the education of 
many great Williams figures, such as 
Washington Gladden, author of "The 
Mountains"; John Bascom, for whom 
Bascom Lodge on the summit of Mt. 
Greylock was named; and William Cullen 

Williuiii C. Sehruni ex-'42; drafted 
last summer for army service, will be the 
only missing member when the (kirgoyle 
Society meets in Jesiip Hall at 9:00 p. in. 

At the first meeting of the socitty's 
1943 delegation in early May, C. Gorhani 
Phillips '43 of Upper Mcntdair, N. J., 
was elected forty-eighth presidmt, while 
at the same time Kdwarcl C. Brown, Jr. 
'43 of .St. Paul, Minn., wis named vice- 
president; Gordon T, Cttsinger '43 of 
Detroit, Mich., treasurer; Edward 1.. 
Emerson '43 of Newton, secretary; and 
(ieorge D. Lawrence '4,' of Cincinnati, 
Ohio, choregus. 

Compulsory athletics for all classi's 
opened its first week et Williams College 
last Monday. Beginninj; July 6, ever\ 
student will have one class in calisthenics 
each week, and two classis in the activity 
of his choice. 

The first purchase to he made under the 
newly instituted cooperative buying sys- 
tem. Campus Business Management at 
Williams College, was that of cigarelles 
for rushing week. All of the sixteen 
social units subscribed to the purchase. 

A motion picture xcrsion of Emile 
Zola's French novel, l.u Bet*- lliiniaiiie, 

will be presented at the V\';ildeii Theatre 
on Tuesday, July 7, under the auspices of 
the local group of Krance I'^orexer. The 
picture was obtained by local leaders of 
the nioN'cment and proceeds will go to the 
Free French organization. 

Inconiini: sludeiits were warned 
\esterday of local blackout regulations, 
when the Williamstown Committee issued 
the following instructions; upon hearing 
the air-raid signal of four short blasts 
thrice repeated, individuals inusl blackout 
all rooms, go to the nearest designated 
shelter and remain there until the al! 
clear signal of two short blasts. 

Lacrosse Practice 
Begins Next Week 

Forty-Five Candidates 
Report for Equipment; 
Dave Brown Is Captain 

Summer lacrosse 
ofiicially began 
this week when 
forty-five candi- 
dates reported to 
the gyiniiasium for 
equipment. On 
Monday Captain 
Dave Brown leads 
the squad in its 
first practice ses- 
sion on Cole Field. 
Since the usual lacrosse opiionents will 
not have teams this summer and because 
of transportation diflicultics, no games as 
yet have been scheduled, although there is 
possibility of a contest with Dartmouth. 
Seventeen Lettermen 
Reporting to Coach Whoops Snively 
« ill be seventeen lettermen from the team 
which hung up a won-lost record of two- 
and-one this spring. In the abbreviated 
season victories were recorded over M . 1 . T. 
and Tufts, while the lone defeat came at 
the hands of a potent Dartmouth combine 
in an overtitne fracas. 

Missing this summer will be four 
regulars. Captain Herb Holdeii, Scjualis 
Gordon, Med Hall, and Shel Timberlake. 
Gordon won the Alumni Lacrosse award 
at the Gargoyle ceremony in May, while 
the others were also stellar performers. 

Returning, however, will be an aggrega- 
tion that should make all potential per- 
formers shudder. Nine senior lettermen 
include, besides Captain Brown, Bernic 
Boykin, Bud Brown, Al James, Hal 
Johnson, Tom Lcary, Dick Means, Nip 
Mears, and Ralph Renzi.

provoking a full-undress brawl, the earliest 
in hi.story. The three-and-a-half-hour 
wrangle, once the two classes forgot sleep 
and decided to mix it, swept through three 
sophomore dorms and drenched Morgan 
Hall before [X'tering out in a naked free- 
for-all on the lawn of the Congo Church. 

Disregarding oft-repeated warnings from 
thcidniinistration that drastic ;iunishment 
will be dealt anyone tampering with the 
hoses, the battlers highlighted the riot by 
flooding Morgan before stern oflScial 
protests drove them into the open.

Arbiter Thorns Sees 
Few Serious Faults 
in Present System 

Dinner Dates Tonight 

For a cnmplcie listing oj (rulernity ami 
Garfield Club svlectiotis, sec page 4. 

One hundred and ninety-eight freshmen 
will be pledged to sixteen social units at the 
third and final date of a precedent- 
breaking six-day rushing period tonight. 

The first summer rushing session in the 
history of the college saw the abandonment 
of traditional dinner dates in an effort to 
cut down expenses, and the adoption of 
earlier hours, Sunday afternoon periods, 
and one hour second dates to permit 
students to carry their work during the 

Bids were consideralily fewer than 
e\er before because of the size of the fresh- 
man class and fraternity quotas were re- 
duced from fourteen to nine men, but 
rushing fervor was, if anything, greater 
than ever before. One luindred and 
ninily-eight neophytes participated in the 
Willianis system this year as compared 
with 287 a year ago, and the first period 
was marked by only 1806 dates, five 
hundred less than in 1941. Freshmen this 
year had 933 second period dates as com- 
pared with 1200 last year. 

Final adjustinent of fraternity and 
freshman choices was made at the "bounce 
session" from 2:00 to 4:00 this afternoon, 
and final invitations were posted imme- 
diately follow iiig the meeting. This year's 
session, held on Fridiy afternoon rather 
than on the traditional Tuesday, was 
strictly limited to two representatives from 
each social group for reasons of ellicic ncy. 

Rushing arbiter Frank R. Thoms, Jr. 
'30, in a statement to The RECORD today, 
said, "Rushing this year has be. n con- 
siderably lighter than last, but we have 
experienced few mechanical Haws if any. 
Wednesday evening's rain showed the 
flexibility o( mir system when two houses 
which had prexiously been prohibited 
from using aiitonmbiles to pick up fresh- 
men were allowed to do so." 

Arbiter Thoms stated at the same time 
(See FLEDGING page 4) 

Thoms Rations Freshmen as Houses Drop 
Pre -Pledging Pranks in Wartime Rushing 

by Paui, Dktei.s '44 
In sharp contrast with the reckless 
buffoonery of other \ears, when i>ractical 
joking was the keynote of the rushing 
season, Williams' first July pledging was 
marked by a seriousness dictated by the 
burning need of the Ikhisls for freshmen. 
Fraternities, some of them crippled by 
enlistment, the draft, and/or the Dean's 
Office, have abandoned downing tactics 
for the duration. 

'Human Fly' Tlionis 
Even Frank 'Human Fly' Thoms, 
veteran arbiter of three years' experience, 
failed to match his famous feat of last fall 
in scaling the exterior of Williams Hall to 
enter via window, and open the door for an 
absent-minded freshman. Instead he per- 
formed a tamer Paul Re\ere act, by 
"scorching" over to Hopkins on a bicycle 
in quest of a room key for a similarly- 
stranded first-year man. 

Shoulder twitches, RAF pilots, chess 
captains, and upperclassmen troubled with 
fleas, all phenomena of past years, put in 
their annual appearance, but in isolated 
instances, rather than in the rugged 
abundance which has heretofore character- 
ized the one-time fall brawl. And there 
is no record of two adjacent fraternities 
playing deaf on the same freshman in 
consecutive periods, as happened last 

No Axes Now'i 
The iTiember of a Main Street fraternity 
who last year ran from room to room 
brandishing an axe and shouting "Some- 
body yell for this?" was successfully 

dissuaded from gi\'ing a repeat per- 
formance by his brothers. And the 
clitiue which last year rushed a forced-bid 
by holding a dice game among themselves, 
abandoned African golf for the duration. 
But the week was b>' no means colorless. 
A forced-bid arrived at one house fifteen 
minutes early Monday night, and was 
ushered ceremoniously out ten minutes 
later, while another freshman put in three 
appearances in one night at the same 
house, finally coming at the right time on 
the last date of the evening.

New Deal for Legacies 

We Iicsitatod lo wrilo llii.s cdiloriiil; first, because we dislike to di.stort 
i'lirtiicr I lie I' llial i.s now Ixiiig ])lace(l iii)on rralcriiily mcmber- 
.shi]); and .second, ix-eaiise we .said these .same words last yt'ar, ami llie 
year l)el'< )!•('. 

Despite Diir failures in the, however, we are liopel'iilly repeating 
our words of last fall: "The Uiidergiiiduate Council slioiild explore the 
wholes question of legueies, and the position they liold in the Williams 
rushing .system. It ciiii accurately be said that luilf of the ni.shiiig .system 
here works for legaeii's, and half iigainsl them. Has anyone an intel- 
lif^enl objection lo treating legacies as normal people, subject to the .same 
rules and cnstoms as other fresliiiuMi? 

"if not, the Coiiiieil .slioulil abolish the two rules of the .system which 
set legacies olV from other fresliiiicn : (I) Tlie rule which publicizes a list 
of all lefj:acies, direct and indirect, thus redncing the iiuinber of houses 
ojK'ii lo llieiTi; jind (2) the rule which often jjiils legacies in a false position 
of ])referciiee at the lop of the final hid lists, thus injuring the chances 
of non-legacies of getting of their c-lioice." 

We tire convinced of Ibe importance of aboli.shing the legacy rules, 
for these rules distribute lieiiefil or injury to freshmen who may or may 
not merit llie treatment so received. Tyegiicies should .stand on their 
own records and character during ru.sliing, being neither aided nor hind- 
ered by the fact lliat their fathers or brolliei-s joined fraternities when 
they were in college.

Some people don't lil<e rushing, lint we 
love to watch freshmen sciuinii iind^r the 
impact of thrice-told tales; we love to eat 
mints so we can have another cigarette 
and smoke cigarettes so we can ha\e 
another mint; all this we like. 

We were leafing through some fossil 
remains a week or so ago when we (lis 
covered a prehistoric depicting 
rushing of other days. As you may well 
imagine, the work (undoubtedly of the 
I'ithecantliropus Erectus School) was 
thought-provoking, and we let our mind's 
eye wander. 

"He's a legacy to Devil's t'ave, 1 under- 
stand," the smooth looking gent with 
lietiutifully thick eyebrows and a well-cut 
leoiKirdskin sport-coat said in a hushed 
tone to his cave brother. 

"Direct?" asked tlie second. 

"\'es," replied the first, "tlis father. 
Pilt Down, is a strong Devil's Cave man, 
and, 1 understand, a big tooth in the 
national cavity." 

All this time the third rusher, ,i tall 
fellow, and a member of the (iymsciUus 
Honorary Society to lioot, was keeping up 
a fast line of cheap chatter with Pill Down, 
Jr. "I guess," said he, pulling the ace 
from his sleeve, "it's pretty tough ealing 
down on Trickle St.; you can't tell whether 
sonie of their stuff is dinosaur or sabie- 
tooth tiger meat!" 

"\'es," said the neophyte, duly impress- 
ed by this smooth line, and hoping 
some day he might be a ('.yroseutus too. 
"Ves, it's pretty tough." 1 le retiched for 
the bone which had been offered him, anil 
started chewing. 

Back ill the corner, however, the first 
and second ca\-e brothers were hatching 
plans which bade no good for Pill Down, 
Jr. "Inasmuch as he had an outstanding 
record as a wooly mammoth hunter while 
preparing for all this," said the first, "1 
hate to do it, but I guess the liest thing to 
do with a legacy is to axe him." 

The seci ml moved closer to Pilt and did. 
The youth crumbled to the cave floor. 

Those, of course, were days when a 
spade was a spade, and an axe (as you may 
have gathered), an ,ixe. Today things 
have changed, and undoubtedly will 
change more whether we ha\e anything 
to say about it or not. 

We can, for instance, envision rushing 
in the 21sl century. Kraternities hav.- all 
become sky-scraping monsleis; Ciargoyle 
has given way to the Silver Wing Society; 
football has been forgolten for the danger- 
ous rocket ship racing; Imt the line, well — 

"1 guess," said Cieniiiii. a tall member of 
llie Silver Wing Socielv. pulling the ace 
from his sleeve, "it's pii ity tough eating 
1. 11 Lake St.; you can't nil whether some 
i.f their food capsules are vitamin A or 15." 

"Yes," said the neophyte, duly im- 
pressed by this smooth line, and hoping 
that some day he might he a Silver Wing 
loo. "Ves, it's pretty tough."

Letter to the Editors 

To thr Editor of The UecouD: 

Williams College in warlinie is a very 
different place than in normal times of 
peace. The men who are privileged to 
continue their education must be con- 
.scious that they may soon be called on for 
active service in this world war. It looks 
like a long war involving immense sacri- 
fices and hi.sses. College men are bound to 
submit themselves to a rigid discipline of 
body, mind, and heart, in preparation for 
momentous responsibililiis. Personally, 
I would like to see a democratic military 
regime in Williams that exempts nobody 
but the unfit, and stilTeiis the backbone 
and morale of everyone. Failing this, the 
least we can do, it seems to me, is that 
the students them.selves should impose a 
high standard of self-discipline. 

There is a natural tendpncy in summer- 
time to be relaxed and slack, as is evident 
in shirt-tails and dirty trousers. With 
this goes a certain sloppiness of manner 
and carriage. As an alumnus I would like 
to sec a race of men here who reveal out- 
wardly in dress and carriage an inward 
discipline and seriousness of purpose that 
the present tragic state of affairs demands. 
While Williams men are fighting on land, 
sea, and in the air all over the world, the 
least Williams men still in college can do 
is to carry themselves like soldiers.

pitching burden falls upon the shoulders of 
senior Bill West, junior portsider Al Swain, 
brother of the graduated outfield, and 
sophomore Phil Smith. In his only start 
this spring against Mass. State, West 
hurled creditable ball until he was relieved 
after an uprising in the ninth. .Swain, 
who has imiiroved rapidly since freshman 
year, should see a good deal of action. 
.Smith has been bothered by lack of con- 
trol, but he has a good fast ball. 

The outfield will have the vetenins 
Gunnar Hayes and Chuck Yeiser in 
addition to Ilarter and -Schmidt to hold 
down the three positions. 

Letternien Bob Gardner and Franny 
Uolan form the nucleus of the catching 
department. Dolan will be available for 
outfield duty when he is not behind the 

The sophomores on the squad are most- 
ly of an unk'iottn ipiality because the 
freshman team this spring played but three 
games, all of lliein victorious. Besides

batting practice mound. Inficlders Bolt

Purple Nine Opens 
Summer Campaign 
Against Dartmouth 

West Will Toe Mound 
at Hanover Saturday; 
Practice Game Today 

hy Davk Thurston '44 
Coach Charlie Calclw<'ll and his veteran 
baseball squad take the road tomorrow for 
their opening engagement in a five game 
summer schedule, playing Dartmouth at 
Hanover, N. II. This afternoon at 
Windsor, \'l. the nine faces the Cone 
Automatic Machine Company's Semi- 
pro oullll in a practice encounter. 

Neither contest will be a set-up for the 
Ephs, for the Indians have lost but one 
game this summer, and that to the Cono- 
matics by a 5-4 count two weeks ago. 
West Toes Slab 
Although still undecided on his batting 
order, Caldwell will start a veteran team 
on .Saturday. Bill West, senior right 
hander, will get the ntxl for the pitching 
assignment, while Bob Gardner will be his 
backstcjp. Al .Swain, Phil Smith, and 
(jordie Johndroi', all pitchers, will be on 
hand for the Friday tilt and for relief 
work against Dartmouth if it is necessary. 
The loss of Stu Lare and Ed Callahan 
was a serious blow to the mound corps, but 
West pitched capable ball this spring, and 
with a little more experience should 
develop into a top-notch hurler. 

Wallace at First 

'The infield will .see John Bridgewater 
converted from lirst base to the hot corner 
where he will lill the shoes of Captain 
Gunnar Hagstrom. This shift makes 
room for Bob Wallace at the initial sack. 
Juniors Bill Donovan and Dick Emery 
round out the infield as the second base 
combination. Al Reilly and Bob Kitlredge 
will serve as utility inlielders. 

Hard -Hitting Trio 

The hard-hitting trio of Captain Bill 
Schmidt, Gunnar Hayes, and Franny 
Dolan will see action in the outfield, with 
Jack Harter, Chuck Yeiser, and Bill Ford 
available for relief duty. 

The Purple will miss the timely bats of 
Hagstrom and Bob Swain, but there is 
still plenty of power packed into the 
lineup. The hitting in the 2,?-2 Army 
slaughter last spring, although not con- 
tinued at such a pace throughout the rest 
of the schedule, proved that the Ephs are 
no weaklings at the plate. 

Thorns, James, Kittredge Back ^Record' Stand 
Recommending 'A New Deal for Legacies'] 

liy 1.. Marshall Van Deusen '44 
Last week The Record, pleading for a "new deal for legacies," proposed the 
abolition of the two rules of the rushing system which set legacies off from other 
freshmen, and queried edilorialK', "Has aiiycme an intelligent olijection to treating 
legacies as normal people, subject to the same rules and customs as other people? 

I'his week Rushing Arbiter Frank R. 
Thorns, Rushing Chairman Alan G. 
James '43, and Undergraduate C'ouncil 
President Robert B. Kittredge '4,? answer- 
ed this question with an emphatic "no," 
and lent their support to The Record's 
suggestion that "the Undergraduate Coun- 
cil — explore the whole question of legacies, 
and the position they hold in the Williams 
rushing system." 

Objections Raised 
The objections raised in last week's 
editorial centered around two rules which 
artificially segregate legacies from otlier 
freshmen: "(1) The rule which publicizes 
a list of all legacies, direct and indinct, 
thus reducing the number of houses ii|)(ii 
to them; and (2) the rule which often puis 
legacies in a false position of preference it 
the top of the final bid lists, thus injuring 
the chances of non-legacies of geltinj; (he 
houses of their choice." I'o these, Arbiter 
Thorns added a third objection, suggesting 
the abolition of the' rule which requires a 

house not pledging a legacy during the 
regular rushing period kj wait five months 
before offering him a post-season bid. 
Rule Passed in 1939 

This last provision was ostensibly de- 
signed at the time of its adoption in the 
fall of 19.39, to prevent "a house from 
turning down a legacy, filling up the 
delegation, then six weeks after rushing 
is over, pleading legac\ rights to raise the 
quota." Rushing Arbiter I'homs, how- 
ever, feels that this argument losoi force 
when it is remembenil that the'wholi; 
Williams system presupposes honest co- 
operation by all houses in the spirit as 
well as the letter of the law. 

Both Thorns and Rushing Chairman 
fames were inclined In minimize the 
injustices resulting from the published lists 
(jf legacies, and pointed out that all 
important cases are known in advance 
anyway. But regarding the rule which 
forces houses deciding In give a legacy a

Director of Labor 

Transferred from WPB 
to Arbitrate Problems 
of Price Rationing 

Robert R. R. Brooks, assistant pro- 
fessor of economics on leave of absence 
from Williams, has been appointed director 
of the newly-created Labor Office of th<' 
Office of Price Administration, to act as a 
general arbiter of the labor problems 
raised by the price ceiling and rationing 
activities of the office. 

In Washington since June, 1941, Mr. 
Brooks worked as consultant in labor 
relations and priorities problems for the 
labor division of the WPB. The impor- 
tance of Mr. Brook's present position is 
emphasized by Price Administrator 
Henderson's announcement of the pur- 
poses of the new Labor Office. 

Henderson Staten\ent 
"Labor has a big stake in the price 
control, rent, an<l rationing programs and 
should take part in helping to carry them 
out to a successful conclusion. One of the

Office will be to establish and maintain

Tennis Is Most Popular Sport in Program 
\ Of Compulsory Athletics for Every Class 

According to figures released yesterday 
by the Department of Physical Education, 
tennis is by far the most popular sport for 
P. T. work under the new program of 
compulsory athletics for all classes. 
Statistics reveal that fifty-six per cent of 
the three upper classes and fifty-one per 
cent of the freshmen have chosen the 
courts as the scene for their "toughening 

Hour o{ Calisthenics 

Under the new athletic plan, every 
undergraduate will be required to partici- 
pate in some form of organized athletics 
three days a week. Those who sign up for 
golf or tennis must report to the gymna- 
sium once each week for an hour period of 
calisthenics. On the other two days lihey 
go straight to the courts or links for at 
least an hour's workout. 

Golf has the secfend largest enrollment, 
with a total of 137 uppcrclassnien and 
thirty-eight freshmen, thirty-four per cent 
of the college. Of this number, forty-five 
are signed up for beginners' golf with free 

Oraena Fee Cheaper 

According to Mrs. Richard Baxter, 
wife of the golf coach, compulsory athletics 
has been a boon for the Taconic Golf Club. 
Although the additional college member- juniors and seniors. 

ships will not completely make up for the 
drop in tourist trade, Mrs. Baxter stated 
that undergraduates will be of invaluable 
financial aid this summer. In order to 
encourage student golfers, the weekday 
green fee has been reduced from $2.00 to 
$1.50 for undergraduates. The Saturday 
and Sunday rate of $2.00 remains the same. 

Varsity lacrosse has the largest turnout 
of the four teams, with forty-six candi- 
dates. Varsity baseball is only two behind 
this total, while the freshman diamond 
forces number forty. Freshman lacrosse 
lags far behind with nineteen players. 

Overnight Hikes 

Students signed up for tennis and golf 
may also go on hikes supervised by the 
Outing Club. J. Edwin Bullock, assis- 
tant professor of physical education, said 
that these trips will go to such places as 
Flora's Glen, Bee Hill, Tri-State Corner, 
Snow Hole, the Dome, Pine Cobble, and 
Mount Greylock. Overnight hikes will 
be conducted to Berlin and Harris Cabins, 
but only one day of P. T. credit will be 
given for these excursions. 

Another innovation in the program is 
that intramural athletics will be counted 
toward P. T. credit this summer for

Baxter Plans Inter-Class 
Fourball Championship; 
Winners Get Numerals 

With his varsity squad looming as the 
only collegi' golf team in the New England 
area this summer, golf coach Dick Baxter 
has turned to nearby country clubs trying 
to get home and home matches. After 
contacting other New Engl.uul colleges 
without getting golf matches Albert V. 
Osterhout '06, 

graduate manager 
of athletics, yes-

write for club 
m a I c li e s . The 
matches will 
be recognized as 
oliici.illy on the 
CdllegL- schedule 
anil transportation 
problems will be dealt with later. 
Barnes Leads Team 

Led by Captain Fred Barnes, lettermen 
Bob McKee and Pete Da\is and three 
newcomers from last spring's freshman 
team, 106 upperclassmen ha\e signed up 
for golf under the compulsory P. T. 
program. In place of a freshman schedule 
and an intercollegiate varsity program, 
Baxter has laid plans for the usual intra- 
mural and college individual champion- 
ships and a new Inter-Class Fourball 
league for six-man teams. Numerals will 
be awarded to the winning class team. 

Baxter hopes to get all throe activities 
under way next week with qualifying 
rounds for the college and fourball 
tourneys. A freshman tournament will 
be held in connection with the college 

Weekend Tourneys I'luiuieil 

Under the leadership of Barnes, the 
Student Golf Association will reorganize 
after being forced out of existence by the 
speed-up last spring. Barnes plans to 
run weekend tournaments through the 
S(;A and will call a meeting of all students 
interested in the near future. 
(See GOLF page 3) 

Houtepartiea Moved 

To Weekend of Aug. 8 

Acting with the approval of Mr, 
Albert V. Osterhout's office, the 
Undergraduate Council voted last 
week to set the date of summer house- 
parties one week earlier than pre- 
viously planned. This action moves 
houseparty weekend from

Simmons Moving Spirit 
in Plan Aiding, Harvest 
and Paying Harvesters 

An ideal chance to help alleviate a labor 
shortage that is well nigh an emergency, 
to ri'ceive wages at a fair scale of pay, .uid 
to have ,1 fine time doing it, is all offered 
by the Williams Christian Association in 
its new F'arm Work Plan expected to get 
under way next Monday afternoon. 

This voluntary project is being organ- 
ized by the WCA in conjunction with 
athletic coach Fielding .Simmons, himself 
a local farmer, to help meet the thirty per 
cent shortage of f;irm l.ibor now confront- 
ing the agriculturists of the nation. The 
organization will probably be accomplished 
through the direction of ,\lhert V. Oster- 
hout '00, 1-^xecutive .Secretary of the 
Student .'Mil Committee, who may also 
conduct the actual administration of the 
project, altliough the WC.'\ will undertake 
the recruiting and college contact work. 
Definite announcement of the final set-up 
is expected by the first of the week.

Farm Labor Plan 

No phase of our college life im.s been a source of more satisfaction to 
Williams undergraduates, and of more service to tlie cominuiiity, than 
the work which the Williams Christian A.s.sociatioii lias |)erformed in the 
Boys' Club, the local churches, and in Chest Fund ailoea Lions. 

It is only logical, therefore, to find the W. ('. A. .supporting the present 
plan of having undergraduates work on local farms. Labor shortage 
makes the need vital; community responsibility makes tiie task not only 
a duty but an oi)portunity; the demand for farm products fostered by the 
war under.scores the fact that Williams .should support the farm labor plan 
energetically and completely. 

In helping local farmers, uiulergraihiates will have an immediate 
privilege of contributing to the defeat of Hitler. Last spring 49% of the 
college a.sserted their willingness to work on a local farm one half-day per 
week, wliile 12' ,' .said they would .serve two such half days. We hope 
they will translate that willingness into aelioii this .suniiner; we join Mr. 
Simmons in wishing that "any request for labor will be promptly over- 

A Loyal Son 

Once in a while in the daily experience of putting out a new.spaper, 
we come face to face with something — a word of appreciation, a sugges- 
tion, action as the result of an edit — which makes tlie hard work worth 

Yesterday an alumnus mailed hack a Rkcoko sub.scriplion card. On 
the back of it, where "Please sign me up for (check one)" isjirinted, he 
has written: "Eyesight failing. Have to cut down on reading. Unwise 
to accept offer about llKCoiiD. Would like to. Heart still at the college. 
I am the only survivor of class of 1876." 

The whole secret of the strength of Williams was inscribed on that 
card. We have written a lot of editorials aixnit what we feel Williams 
must tlo if the college is to survive the war, but above all, we realize that 
Williams will survive only thrcnigii the loyalty of her scms. The Rev. 
John J. Rankin '76 has that devotion: only the partial loss of his eyesight 
is preventing liim from continuing to support an undergraduate activity. 
We thank him for his loyalty.

Letters to the Editors 

To the Editors of The Record: 

Much has been said.inthepases of The 
Record and elsewhere, in regard to the 
possibilities of Williams men helping the 
iie.arby farmers this summer. 

This possibility can becimie fact through 
earnest cooperation of the undergraduates. 
Farmers are being notified thai Williams 
College olTers a source of extra help in 
this busy harvest season. They are being 
told to notify Mr. Osterhout of the num- 
ber of hands needed for any afternoon 
between one and six. They are also 
lieing rcc|uested to pick up the men at a 
designated point in town and return them 
there after work. Finally, the>' are asked 
to pay men a minimum of thirty 
cents per hour, which seems a fair price 
for the willing but inexperienced help they 
will receive. 

I have no idea how much they will call 
on you. From the partial survey I made 
early last spring, labor conditions on near- 
by farms were poor but not critical, and 
furthermore, the average farmer is preju- 
diced against amateur labor. Therefore, 
it is quite possible that no advantage will 
be taken of the offer extended. 

If pleas for help are made, they will 
represent the chance for Williams men to 
contribute a great deal to national and 
community welfare as well as a small 
arnount to their personal welfare. I 
sincerely hope that any request for labor 
will be promptly oversubscribed.

day one of the musicians of the faculty 
mil set it to music, so that it can be sung 
by the students to the beautiful ami 
well-known tune, 'For (he Beauty of the 
Earth'." On behalf of ilw college, we wish 
to thank Mr. Frick for his gift to the Williams 
song collection. We suggest that "Mt.

she will be paid four cents a pound for it.

Tweedy '42 Reported 
Missing After Recent 
Battle off Midway 

According to Richard M. Whiddon, 
secretary of last year's graduating class, 
Albert W. Tweedy e,\-'42 has been rc- 
porteil missing since the Battle of Midway, 
which took place on June 5 and 6. 

This is the first jiews of Tweedy which 
has reached the Alumni Office since last 
February, when Mr. Edwin 11. Adriance 
'14, Alunnii Secretary, received word that 
he was a Marine Aviation Cadet, stationed 
at the Navid Air Station in Pensacola, 

Tweedy, who left college at the ejid of 
his sophomore year in order to enlist in 
Marine Aviation, was a member of Delta 
Psi, and came from llingham.

House Should 'Decide' 

This rule, also passed in 1939, was de- 
signed to force houses to decide "yes" or 
"no" on their legacies, and prevent them 
from the "highly deplorable" practice of 
putting a legacy far down on the list in the 
hope that he will be frozen out b\' the 
quota clause. Present-day sentiment, 
however, as reflected by Thoms, James, 
and Kittredge, inclines to the view that 
this is a problem for each house to decide 
for itself, without reference to campus- 
wide legislatiim. 

Kittredge .said the whole problem will lie 
brought up before the Undergraduate 
Ciiuiicil for di.scussion and investigation. 
It will probably be referred to a connnittee 
for action in the near future.

Summer Slate Looks 
Doubtful for Lacrosse 

Purple Stickmen May 
Play Yale This Season 

With virtually all of the twenty colleges 
approached restricting t hemselves to intra- 
mural lacrosse for the summer term, a 
potentially good squ;id of Williams la- 
crossemen faces a potentially poor sche- 

Apparently for reasons of economy, few 
colleges will accqpt any dates at all, and 
Yale University which has invited the 
Purple stickmen down for a game, has also 
declined any invitation to journey to 
Williamstown. At present. Coach Whoops 
Snively is in communication with the 
Boston Lacrosse Club in hopes of finding 
some games through that organization. 

40 Men Report 

In spite of these dim prospects, a squad 
of over forty men has turned up on Cole 
Field for practice. It boasts some good 
veterans, goalie-Captain Dave Brown, and 
a first string junior attack made up of Don 
Lindsay, Ed Sheffield, and Bob Buck. To 
compensate for the loss of an effective 
midfield and experienced defense, Snively 
has 'I'om Leary, Rick Shepard, anil 
Cruimie Cole to tiraw upon. 

The new sophomore addition is headed 
by Gil Lefferts, and Al Honynge last year's 
freshman co-captains. With them is 
Fred Scarborough and .•\rt Vorys, both of 
whom need e.xperiener but according to 
Coach Snively, show gical promise. 

As yet the squad ha> sjjent most of its 
time scrimmaging, to net in running form 
again. Within a week or two, however, 
the work will begin on ^ame fundamentals 
and individual skill. Alter that teams and 
lines will be formed and the teatn play

by the volunteer farmhamls, ftivor will be 
shown scholarship and needy college men. 
This by no means indicates that there will 
be no place for others, since the need is 
great and imm^tdiate. Some of the less 
needy members of the WCA are planning 
to turn such earnings tis they realize into 
War Bonds and Stamjjs and hope to 
convince others to do the s;nne. 

The labor shortage has recently been 
aggravated by an unusually rapid matur- 
ing of the hay crop which has arrived 
coincidentally with the time set aside for 
planting on many farms. I'his indicates 
that the next crop of hay will also arrive at 
a crowded moment, when the vegetable 
and fruit harvest is due. 

Tractors and I'ilclil'i>rk« 

Through the work of Simmons, some 
thirty-five local farmers have already been 
contacted; an ad in the North Adams 
Transcript is expected to bring in more 
candidates. These land owners have 
agreed to transport the substitute har- 
vesters to their farms and put them to 
work there driving tractors, teams, pitch- 
ing hay, cultivating, and aiding in the 
planting. Specific experience in any one 
of these is not absoluteh' necessary 
although trained men are at a premium. 

WCA President Leonard C. Thompson 
'43, emphasized that this was to be "no 
cinch"; the plan entails real work that is 
entirely vital and must be done as well as 
it possibly can be. Even though no P. T. 
credit will be given for the work, student 
field hands must report for an entire 
afternoon's work to make the contribution 
worth while. The relationship main- 
tained between the farmers and their 
student laborers will be strictly that of 
employer to employee. 

When the final organization is com- 
pleted, the farmers will be able to call the 
central office in the morning, tell the person 
in charge how many men he will need and 
for what type of work. The central 
office will then get in touch of the students 
on call and tell them to be ready for an 
afternoon's work. It will be the farmer's 
job to call for and return the workers to 
the college after the day's job is done.

Fliers Use New Field; 
Abbott Pilot in C.A.P. 

Although its activities will be drastically 
curtailed because of the war, the Williams 
Flying Club plans to continue functioning 
this summer, it was announced this week 
by Charles G. Abbott '43, club president. 

Having closed its own flying field for 
lack of funds to keep the required armed 
guard on the premises, the organization 
has arranged to use a private field in 
Adams which it is reconditioning at present 
in C(jo|;eration with local airmen. "Be- 
cause of limited equipment, lack of a 
permanent instructor, and lack of a com- 
mercial license for the field at present," 
declared Abbott, "we must limit flying 
activities to those who already have 
licenses, or who have soloed." 

Abbott is active at present in the Civil 
Air Patrol, based at Troy, N. Y., which is a 
non-military flyer squadron under the 
direction of the O.C.D. It is engaged in 
ferrying government officials behind the 
lines in America where regular commercial 
transportation has been sharply curtailed. 
The Flying Club hopes eventually to bring 
a C.A.P. unit to the Adams field so that 
Williams men may engage in this work. 

Two Yearling Teams 
Hold First Workouts 

Inter-hquad games will hold the spot- 
light in the first sports season for the Class 
of 1946 as rival prep and high schools are 
not in session this summer. Formal 
practice is being held in only two sports, 
baseball and lacrosse, but tennis and golf 
are open for P. T. credit twice a week. 

Coach Fielding Simmons reports over 
fort\' baseball candidates in the first week 
of workouts. Simmons has divided the 
squad into four teams and is organizing 
a baseball league on the campus. He 
expects an entry into the league from the 
varsity squad and possibly some other 
stu<leiil teams. 

Nineteen yearlings turned out for the 
first lacrosse drills. All games will be 
within the college. Intra-squad and class 
teams will be organized and the freshmen 
will be working in close coimection with 
the varsity during the summer. Practices 
will be held only on Mondays, Thursdays 
and Saturdays as Coach Dick Colman is 
busy with summer football the other days 
of the week.

Barnes, McKee and Davis will form the 
nucleus of the varsity, along with Charlie 
Heuer, last year's freshman leader. Also 
up from the yearling squad are Munro 
Steel and Hob Maxfield. Barnes recent- 
ly turned in a sparkling 69 card, firing 
seven birdies on the eighteen hole trip to 
finish four below regulation figures. 
Heuer has hit sub-par nines but has yet 
to play the full eighteen.

4 Softball Games Open 
Summer Intramurals 

Competition for the Intramural Cup 
began ajiain yesterday as the summer 
Softball season got into full swing with 
eight Iraternities battling on the Ciile and 
Weston Field diamonds. 

This summer, instead of Ix'ing divided 
into leagues, the softball nines will all play 
each other once in one sixteen-team league. 

The Chi Psis, defending champions of 
the Cup and of the softball crown, rapped 
out a 10-1 victory over the Sigs. Giving 
up an unearned run in the first inning, the 
Chipsies rallied in their half of the canto 
and forged into a lead they never relin- 
quished. Dick Lambert, undefeated under- 
armer for the Hoxsej- Streeters, held the 
Sigs in check with his "nothing ball." 

The Zetes won their first game in two 
years yesterday by whaling tlu> Alpha 
Delts by a 9-1 count. Staging a six-run 
uprising in the first inning, the Zetes 
coasted to victory. Hurler Dick King 
held the A.D.'s scoreless until the final 
inning, when a trio of misplays alhiwed a 
single run to cross the plati'. 

I'he Betes had little mercy on the Theta 
Delts in lashing out a lS-3 triumph. 
Munro Steel experienced no trouble 
sending the T.D.'s away from the plate, 
while his males blasted their way to vic- 

In the only close game of the day, the 
Psi U.'s eked out a 2-0 shutout of the 
Dekes. Aided by tight fielding, Gordon 
Getsinger pitched his club to victory.

Travel Bureau Closes 
For Duration of War 

The V\'illianis Travel Bureau will 
suspend iiperations for the duration of 
the war in the very near future. Accord- 
ing to Charles <"r. Abbott '43, president of 
the organization, passenger transportation 
has lieeii so drastically curtailed on orders 
from the government that few ri'serva- 
tions for travel are now availalile. Under 
these conditions a profit-making agency 
could not continue to function proiJerly. 

'I'he situation for the Williams bureau 
was liighlightetl, Abbott deelart'd, when 
the .New York to Albany run of the 
American Airline Service shut down in 
acconkmce with the plan to cut air 
transportation in half. This run and 
boat travel, which has naturally been 
suspeiiiled, had fjeen the principal sources 
of income to the agency. All assets and 
account books will be kept intact so that 
the Bureau will be able to resume activity 
after the war exactly where it left oiT. 

"We have decided," AbVK)tt stated, 
"that it would be highly inadvisable to 
try to run a profit-making Travel Agency 
at this time with so few facilities open to 
us. Railroads pay no connnission and it 
is practically impossible to obtain reserva- 
tions for other means of transportation 
unless it is on really important business." 

Perry Booklet Makes 
For EflFective Study 

Increasing its help lo both freshmen and 
upperclassmen, the Dean's Office this week 
made available to nuinbers of all four 
classes the booklet entitled Effective 
Study of Elementary Courses, edited by 
William G. Perry, Jr., assistant to the 
1 )ean. The 40-page booklet was distribut- 
ed to the Class of 1946 at a meeting in 
Jesup Hall Tuesday evening, and can be 
secured by members ol the upper classes 
at the Dean's Office. 

At the same time Mr. Perry announced 
that the reading course given last year, 
would, with minor modifications designed 
to improve the, be given again this 
year, and that individual instruction to 
students in study skills, and increased 
efficiency would be continued. A survey 
last spring showed that 72% of the stu- 
dents who sought Mr. Perry's help im- 
proved their marks, and that in the re- 
maining instances, a downward trend 
was checked. This individual instruc- 
tion is most definitely not reserved for 
freshmen only, nor is the reading course, 
which last year increased speed and 
comprehension in every case.

I'rceaiilion System Explained 

Dr. Mears, in the first part of his speech, 
outlined the intricate system set-up in this 
area, patterned after the London mechan- 
ism for air-raid control, and described the 
extensive precautions that have lieen 
taken in the town for an emergency, lie 
particularly stressed the pre|)arations 
made to take care of evacuees and injured 
from the coastal regions, even to the 
providing for reserve food, supplies and 
fuel for any eventuality. 

Bomb Types Descrilietl 

Declaring that "there is military im- 
portance here," Dr. Mears described the 
most popular types of bomlis which he 
stated are increasing to a size "beyond 
ordinary conception", and gave some hints 
on how best to cope with them. 

Dr. Perry, in discussing the fire i)roblem 
of the college, urged every member present 
to "think through what you may have to 
face," to inspect your posts and find all the 
equipment, and in what shape it is. He 
described the present techniques of hand- 
ling incendiary bombs, but added that 
types arc changing so rapidly today that 
post-wardens will, in all probal)ility, "have 
to invent methods of their own if the time 
coines." He stressed the danger of trying 
to assume all the burden; "if the fire looks 
at all serious, get the help of a trained

Williams Places Third 
In Five-Crew Regatta 

A Williams crew skippered by Romeyn 
Kverdell '42 placed third in the closely, 
fought intercollegiate yacht races June 
22-24 at Oyster Hay, I.. 1. Everdell's 
crew, competing in the fifteenth annual 
MacMillan Cup series, included John 
l'"uller '43 and Mutler Whiting '44. 

Williams garnered 17 [joints in the five 
races; Dartmouth, led by Emil Mosbacher, 
defended its intercollegiate championship 
with mj points to n\ for Harvard. 
Navy picked up 15^ points with Princeton 
an also-ran. 

I'lirpic Gets 2 Seconds 

The five crews took turns sailing each of 
five yachts in the various races. Williams 
placed third in the first race with Harvard 
the wiiuier. On the second day of sailing, 
the Purple crew placed fourth and then 
second in the two races, as Navy won both. 
Everdell had the misfortune to be recalled 
at the start of the first contest, as he 
jumped the starting gun by half a second. 

On the final day of racing. Harvard took 
the lead in the series by winning the first 
race, but Mosbacher wjn the final race for 
Dartmouth while keeping two boats 
between himself and the Harvard crew. 
Williams placed second in both contests. 

The Williams Yacht Club has scheduled 
a liome-and-hoiue series with Dartmouth 
this summer as well as entering in the 
M. I. T. regatta.

Bill Donovan Slated 
To Hurl 2nd Game 
Against Dartmouth 

Indians Trip Purple, 2-1 
in Ten Inning Contest 
at Hanover Saturday 

Bill Donovan will take the mound to- 
morrow at 2:30 p.m. on Weston Field 
when Coach Charlie Caldwell's nine 
i.ttempts to even matters with the potent 
Dartmouth combine that handed it a 
ten-inning 2-1 setback last Saturday at 
Hanover, N. H., in the opening start of 
the summer campaign. 

This will be the first pitcliing assign- 
ment for the erstwhile shortstop, but 
Williams diamond fans have long Tieen 
aware of the pitching potentialities of his 
powerful right arm. Bob Kiltredge will 
probably take over Donovan's midfield 

Issues Free 'I'ickeli* 

Bill West held the Indians to but fi\e 
hits in nine and a third frames .Saturday, 
but his wildness accounted for both of 
their runs. Jim Doole, Dartmouth hurler, 
also allowed five hits in chalking up his 
.third triumph of the summer season, but 
he was not so generous with free tickets, 
issuing hut two, compared to West's 
seven . 

The Indians took the lead in the last of 
the sixth when Bill Cary and Dixie 
Daniels led off w ith hits to right. Captain 
Johnny Koslowski beat out a sacrifice 
bunt and the bases were filled. West 
nearly got out of this hole as Donovan 
made a pair of force plays at home, but a 
walk to Al Barrett allowed Koslowski to 
tally the first run. 

Sehiiiiill E>cu(lliick8 Cluiiiil 

The Purple came back in the top of the 
seventh to deadlock the game. Captain 
Bill Schmidt and Bob Wallace each drove 
singles to left. Fran Dolan forced Wallace 
at second, Schmidt taking third on the 
play. When Dolan started to steal 
second, Koslowski's peg went into center 
field and Schmidt crossed the plate. 

West walked the first batter to face him 
in both the seventh and eighth innings but 
a pair of sparkling double plays saveil him 
from grief. In the eighth, right fielder 
Gunner Hayes proved that the twin killing 
that he started in the fifth canto was no

WCA Farm Plan Begins 
As 28 Enlist For Work 

First Student- Farmer 
Group Starting Today 

At 2:00 this afternoon, the first stu- 
dent-farmer contingent of any consider- 
able size left Williamstown to pitch hay on 
one of the nearby dairy farms and marked 
the real beginning of the Williams 
Christian Association plan to help alleviate 
the local rural labor shortage. 

Twenty-eight undergraduates have now 
been signed by the WCA and Albert V. 
Osterhout '06, executive secretary of the 
Committee on Student Aid, and a work- 
ing schedule is being outlined through 
which the farmers may most easily obtain 
the number of workers they want when 
they need them. 

Ten-Thirty Calls 

According to present plans and the 
circular letter now being mailed to the 
neighboring land owners, calls will be 
accepted at the Osterhout office in Hopkins 
Hall as late as 10:30 in the morning. 
After that, the call will be relayed to 
student volunteers either by telephone, 
card, or by a bulletin board system, and 
they will be told where and when to report. 

More Men Needed 

The group of four Williams students 
pitching hay for the Galusha farm this 
afternoon, and the several single volunteer 
workmen who have been stationed at 
various dairies and farms in this area 
are by no means all the labor needed or 
to be used in this section. Eighteen of 
the twenty-eight are freshmen recruits, 
with the upperclass registration not as 
yet completed. 

Gargoyle Urges College to Permit 
Freshman Eligibility For Varsities 

President Baxter and Dr. Locke Will Discuss 
Resolution in Talks This Weekend 

The Gargoyle Society today presented to President James 1 Baxter, 3rd, a 
resolution urging the Administration to permit freshman partici|iation in varsity 
athletics. The recommendation, which resulted from two we, ks' consideration 
and investigation by the society, was offered by C. Gorham :'liillips '43, Gar- 
goyle president, and William C. Schmidt, Jr. '43, chairman of thi society's athletic 

Dr. Baxter asserted he would discuss the recommendation over he weekend with 
Dr. Edwin A. Locke, director of health and athletics. The Willienns President 
is in town for four days to preside over the 

summer meeting of the Board of Trustees. 
Text of Resolution 

The Gargoyle resolution made three 

"1) That all freshman be permitted tn 
participate in varsity athletics for the 

"2) That all sports be organized on a 
two-squad basis if possible; the first scpiail 
to supply material for the varsity; the 
second to furnish the men for a jay-we 

".^) That immediately following tin 
end of the war, the Administration con- 
sidei seriously the readoption of the fresh 
man athletic program." 

Action Now Ur«ed 

In making these pru.ajsals. Chairman 
Schmidt emphasized tliat Gargoyle "is 
acting now, because the society is con- 
vinced that the issue of freshman partici- 
|)ation must inevitably i ■ f;iced, and can 
lie met today with less ■ mfusion and loss 
of time and effort." 

Five reasons underlying Gargoyle's 
resolution urging freshman participation 
in varsity athletics wc re presented to 
President Baxter and Dr. Locke. A 
summarization of these leasons follows: 

1) Williams' athletic set-up will be

James Leads Lacrosse 
Sqaud to Free Dinner 

Last Prospective Game 
Seems Lost to Purple 

With no games scheduled through the 
office of the Graduate Manager of Ath- 
letics, and none apparently forthcoming. 
Coach Whoops Snively's lacrosse squad is 
arranging an intra-squad set-up that will 
liven practice and supply much of the 
incentive needed in a gameless season. 

Dinner For Victory 

Dividing his recruits into three approxi- 
mately equal six-man teams, Snively has 
presented as trophy to the club winning 
the most games during the course of a 
week, a dinner with the "fixin's" on Friday 
night. These teams have been organized 
and captained by the squad's three goal- 
guards. At present, the group lead by 
senior Iggy James is showing the greatest 
power or appetite with a credit of six 
consecutive games that leaves the teams 
headed by varsity captain Dave Brown, 
and sophomore Dave Goodhart pretty 
much in the lurch. 

No Mohawk Game 

This competitive system was inaugur- 
ated when the Mohawk Lacrosse Club of 
Schenectady, N. Y., was turned down 
after offering a home-and-home encounter 
as a non-coUcge outfit. Because the 
Mohawk club was not a college team. 
Athletic Fund money could not be ob- 
tained to send the Purple to Schenectady. 
This fact, and the unprecedented summer

wish to play the former sport in the fall

It is strongly urged that all juniors and 
seniors obtain their permits before this 
time, as there will be a routine check-up 
for the benefit of those who are negligent. 
Two students have been penalized heavily 
for violating the driving regulations 
through ignorance of the rules, " said

Thorns Issues Forms 
For Uniform System 
In CBM Bookkeeping 

Frank R. Thoms '30, resident business 
manager of CBM, released forms for 
budgeting and reporting on fraternity 
expenses at a meeting of the House 
Treasurer's Committee Tuesday evening. 
The forms, completed by Manager I'homs, 
Weber H. Arkenburgh '02, Executive 
Committee Chairman Charles B. Hall '15, 
and David B. Mathias '26 last weekend, 
call for much detail, but, according to Mr. 
Thoms, "are not so complicated that 
anyone will have trouble following them." 

Individual house treasurers are expected 
to draw up budgets for the month of 
August using the system now in operation, 
but reports will be made on the new forms. 
Final steps will be taken when the manager 
formulates and supervises the adoption of 
a uniform bookkeeping system which will 
aim for simple, but complete data.

Tuesday evening, the Adelphic Union 
presents an informal panel discussion on 
"The People's War," at 7:4.S in Jesup Hall. 
The initial event in the Union's eidivened

its leaders Professors Max Lernir, Richard 
A. Newhall, and Frederick L. Schuman 
faculty members who h.ue gained wide 
recognition in the fields c;f political science 
and history. 

Based upon a theme suggested by 
Professor I.ern.r several months ago, more 
recently popularized by Vice-President 
Wallace, and designed to stimulate 
audience |)artieipation, the fcrum will 
include ten- to fiftetn-minute addresses

Facing Higher Cost of Living, Social Groups 
Now Save on Eggs, Butter, Meat, and Coffee 

by Leston G. Havens, '45 

With food-saving programs general and 
undergraduate ingenuit\- boundless, Wil- 
liams social groups have few fears for the 
summer, though minor curtailments are 
campus-wide. For the present sugar 
supplies appear ample, and board costs 
are no higher. 

Chief among the restrict ions placed are 
those on butter, orange juice, and the more 
expensive meats. Midnight snacks and 
desserts at lunch, gencralh curtailed at 
the start of the war, have been further 
restricted or cut out entirely. 

E!ggs, Cottee Rationed 

Fewer eggs for breakfast, the cutting 
down on cake, cookies, and coffee are also 
measures designed to lower board costs 
and ease supply shortages, and some 
houses have undertaken the substitution 
of milk for cream whenever piissible. 

An outline of the programs undertaken 
by each of the social groups follows: 

Alpha Dalta Phi: Cake and cookies 
are no longer served with lunch, and the 
use of milk and cream is restricted. Pan- 
cakes, cheaper than eggs, are substituted 
as frequently as possible. 

Bata Theta Pi: Sugar is not served 
any more with coffee, and there has been a 
radical reduction in the number of victrola 
records bought to make up for the in- 
creased food costs. 

Chi P»i: One egg instead of two is the 
present maximum, and dessert is no 
longer served at luncheon. There is an 

ample sugar supply. Mend)ers who plan 
to be absent from a meal sign their names 
on a chart, thuseffectinn a saving. 

Delta Kappa Epsilon: Coffee has 
been eliminated al dinner, and two glasses 
of milk and two squares of butter are the 
maximum allowed per person each meal. 
The serving of steak has been reduced to 
once every two weeks, and milk for the 
waiters at night is out. 

Delta Phi : I ncreasing difficulties have 
been met in the ])urchasc of certain meats, 
and consequently the choice is often 
narrowed. Economizing measures have 
been undertaken in every way possible. 

Delta Psi: No restrictions have been 
found necessary . 

Delta Upsilon : I )esserts are no longer 
served at lunch, and there is no food laid 
out for midnight snacks. 

Garfield Club: Milk has been sub- 
stituted in all cases for cream, and the 
amount of ice tea served has been reduced. 
Steak is now served only once a month, 
there being a comparative reduction on all 
expensive meats. On the whole the food 
situati(m is "very optimistic." 

Kappa Alpha : Only one egg is served 
each man at breakfast, and meals are no 
longer as elaborate as they were. 

Phi Delta Theta: Eating between 
meals has been ended, and on hand is an 
ample supply of sugar. 

Phi Oamma Dalta: A careful pro- 
gram to conserve butter has been insti-

A Schedule for Lacrosse 

Over forty interested men have actively participated in lacrosse 
practices thi.s semester, but to date the athletic department has not 
scheduled a single college or athletic-club opponent to meet them on the 

Lacrosse, as every one knows, is the best summer sport for the con- 
ditioning of future .soldiers, sailors, and marines that Williams offers. 
The sport here ha.s widespread popularity among all classes, is the natural 
medium through which the college can condition men without relying 
wholly on calisthenics, and has won as much, if not more, undergraduate 
support than any other authorized sport. 

In the face of these facts, the lack of a lacrosse schedule is inex- 
plicable, particularly when both tennis and baseball teams already have 
games on the docket, particularly as day by day attendance at lacrosse 
practice slackens because the team has no games ahead as an incentive 
for hard work. 

If the athletic department sets as its summer policy the conditioning 
of future fighters, how account for the lack of a lacrosse schedule? If 
the athletic department believes that intercollegiate athletics will build 
college morale and keep its men in shai)e, how account for the lack of a 
lacrosse schedule? If the athletic department stresses equality of 
opportunity in its three autiiorized intercollegiate summer sports, how 
account for the lack of a .schedule? 

We cannot account for it, and h()i)e the athletic department will be 
able to schedule opponents for the lacrosse team, from among other 
colleges and athletic clubs, on a home-aiid-home basis in the near future. 

Fighting France 

Tuesday evening, July 14, the peo])le of Williamstown gave Nazi- 
dominated France an answer our Department of State and the foreign 
offices of the United Nations were unwilling to give. Tuesday evening's 
Bastille Day celebration and hundreds of others like it told the oppressed 
peoples of France that we stand solidly behind them. 

On Bastille Day, the national holi<lay banned by the Vichy govern- 
ment in 1940, other events took place: In France Nazi police struggled 
vainly to suppress spontaneous demonstrations by the people; in Wash- 
ington Sumner Wells announced that Vichy had flatly reiected United 
States proposals that the French fleet interned in Alexandria be removed 
to the Western Hemisphere; in London a politically unrecognized General 
Charles deGaulle pledged continuing Free French sup])ort. 

And on that day the United States continued to recognize the Vichy 
government as the true government of France — the Petain-Laval dic- 
tatorship which Professor Schuman termed "the forces of the counter- 
revolution, who betrayed France, who sold their country-men to Hitler 
for thirty pieces of silver, who have set out to abolish Liberty, Equality, 
and Fraternity." 

While the Department of State hesitated, while officials continued 
to refuse recognition of the fighting French as the government of France, 
free peoples through the world gave France her answer last Tuesday. 
Perhaps the .\inerican spirit of Bastille Day will help convince Washington 
that you cannot appease the Nazis' agents any more successfully than the 
Nazis themselves were appeased at Munich. 

si-rved at intervals. There is one pat o( 
butter at each meal. 

Theta Delta Chi: A meal chart, to 
record those planning not to attend certain 
meals, has been put up, and this promotes 
saving, particularly over weekends. An 
ample supply of sugar is on hand. 

Zeta Pai: More than one helping of 
butter is not permitted, and about one 
quarter of the desserts have been elimin- 
ated. More fruits and less pastries are 
served, besides the increased use of supper 
left-overs for lunch.

Students who have not already done so 
are strongly advised to get ttieir under- 
graduate athletic tickets before Saturday, 
since no one without a ticket may gain 
entrance . to any of the season's games 
without paying full admission. 

Letter to the Editor 

All students owning cars who have not 
already done so must buy a $5 automobile 
stamp immediately and be sure to paste it 
on the front of their windshield. Failure 
to comply with this regulation will result 
in a $25 fine.. 

To the Editor of The Record 

Several openings have developed in the 
machine shop training oourse due to fail- 
ure of various students to return and to 
changed schedule which caused others to 
drop out. 1 should be much pleased if 
you would make this fact known in The 
Record for July 17 and ask that anyone 
interested in entering the course see me 
at once. We can accommodate about 
eight new students in the course. 

In addition to the machine training 
offered In the past we are now ready to 
allow those interested to study internal 
combustion engines, their structure, re- 
pair and maintenance. We have a 
Chevrolet engine and a Ford V8 engine. 
This study may be of particular interest to 
those who may go into mechanized units 
of the armed forces where a knowledge of 
internal combustion engines will be useful.

Incongruity Renders New'Cow* 'Inconclusive'; 
'Genius' and 'Night Brought Fear' Win Prais 

by Robert J. Allen 
Assistant Professor of English 

People willing to be amused who have 
been waiting to see how the Sketch-Cow 
merger would come out will hardly find an 
answer in the first number, which appeared 
last week. It has an L. Hill cover superior 
to anything which has blanketed the 
Purple Cow for several years. It has an 
honest, if negative, statement of editorial 
aims, certain graphic caricatures ejf college 
life, several stories (two excellent), and 
various quips, critiques, and wanton wiles. 
But the result is inconclusive. 

Old Format Retained 

One confusing factor arises from the 
retention of the old Purple Cow format. 
Even the material in the Wall Street 
Journal, if printed on the same pages with 
drawings of grotesquely voluptuous young 
women and college men whose eyes are 
X's, would acquire an oblique and raffish 
character. The serious contributions to 
the new Purple Cow, not to push the 
comparison any farther, suffer from a 
similar incongruity. It is encouraging to 
note that the editors plan a change of 
"size, format, and design... as soon as 
present contracts expire" and that they 
are looking forward with pleasure to the 
freedom they will have in laying out a 
new magazine. 

There are signs throughout the new issue 
that the editors plan to develop a style of 
writing that will run through all parts of 
the publication except the stories. The 
pervading manner promises to be, at its 
best, light and amusing without sacrificing 
content to irresponsible phrase-making. 
It appears to good advantage in "Coming 
Attractions?" and "Notes at 8:40," two 
agreeable departments which review recent 
movies and plays. In the profile of A. G. 
James '43, a certain heaviness creeps in in 
spite of gallant efforts to avoid it, and in 
"Reflections on Sex Rationing for the 
Uninitiated" (a curiously ambiguous title, 
by the way ), a certain faun-like exuberance 
runs away with the author completely. 
Whether something approaching a con- 
sistent style can be achieved is not yet 
clear. If it can, it will assist the new- 
format in fusing the two old magazines. 
"The Pattern" Good 

A few of the contributors have come 
through well for the first combined issue. 
The article entitled "The Pattern," on 
the editorial page, predicts the continuance 
of the three-term college year and makes 
up for its lack of exhaustiveness by a 
praiseworthy independence of traditional 
academic habits of thought. 

Two narrative pieces are also worth 
special comment. The one called "Genius" 
is a skillful portrayal of a common kind 
of self-deception, that of the man who 
builds up his own complacency by elabor- 
ately justifying himself for wasting his 
time. Another, with the unfortunately 
cinematic title, "The Night Brought 
Fear," reveals through the unsophisticated 
eyes of a small boy a tense emotional 
situation involving adults. Both these 
stories suggest that the authors know what 
they are about and are in their very dif- 
ferent ways highly effective. 

Anonymity A Problem 
One matter of policy which faces the new 
board is that of giving ere dit to authors

for their contributions. In Sketch only 
editorials were regularly anonymous. In 
the old Purple Cow anonymity, with a 
few exceptions, was the rule. The new 
magazine follows the latter practice in 
the main, but four or five contributions 
are initialed. The only thing fully signed 
is a letter to the editor by a young lady 
from Smith. 

The efforts of the combined editorial 
board suggest that it is receptive towards 
a variety of material, and it deserves en- 
couragement in its new project by both 
readers and contributors. Although the 
fusion seems at present imcomplete and 
the announced aim of excluding everything 
"boring or dull" has not yet been fully 
achieved, the best of the recent issue is 
above par. The appearance of the first 
issue with the new format is the thing 
to watch. 


(Continued from page 1) 
eligibility rule is retained, for the calendar 
of the next two years will produce atblitic 
seasons in which the freshmen will he 
ineligible for half a season, and eligible for 
the other half. 

2) All Williams' football oppoiiciits 
have made freshmeji eligible, execpl 
Amherst. Gargoyle does not favor nui- 
ning athletics purely for the purpose of 
producing a winning team, but does feel 
that a winning team, if produced through 
completely commendable means, is a greai 
boost to college morale, helps sustain 
alumni interest in Williams teams, ami 
greatly encourages the athletes theniseKes. 

i) Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, wli:i 
have in the past been policy-niakinj; 
leaders in the non-professionalized athletic 
collei;c world, have all made freshmen 
cligiliU' lor varsity competition. 

4) Williams freshmen, under the accel- 
erated curriculum, have a right to enjoy 
three years' varsity experience if they lia\e 
the ability. Under the present set-up, 
Williams freshmen will not be sufficiently 
traine<l for varsity participation until the> 
have been at college for over a year. 

.5) The college will be increasiiigl\- 
dependent on freshmen for enrollment, and 
Williams will soon find itself unable to 
collect large enough athletic squads for 
effective team work if freshmen continue 
to be ineligible. 


(Continued from page 1) 

The de-emphasis on formal debatin,; 
and subsequent trend toward round-table 
discussions was recogni/.ed by the debaters 
as they voted to .dxuidon the formal 
Oxford style for the summer. College 
panel discussions such as next Tuesday's, 
and inter-collegiate Oregon cross-examin- 
ation debates will be held in an effort to 
awaken audience interest. 

Topics of Universal Interest 

Said Frank M. Wozencraft '44, upon his 
election to fill the office of vice-president, 
vacated when Jerome K. Travers '43 left 
college, "It is also important that the 
topics we choose be of universal interest. 
We will welcome suggestions from the 
students, faculty, and townspeople on 
topics for our debates and discussions." 

Plans for a four-college debate tourna- 
ment to be held on August 15, as well as 
details of the panel on"The People's War" 
were announced at the meeting by 
Secretary Thomas S. Walsh '44, and 
Merwin A. Sheketoff '43, business manager 
of the Adelphic Union.

College ARP Functions 
Smoothly in Black-out 

On Wednesday night at 10:20, the lights 
of Williamstown blinked out as the com- 
munity went through another test air- 
raid alarm succe.ssfully. Winthrop H. 
Root, head of the college ARP, sai(l that 
there was "no particular incident" as the 
20-minute black-out "went off smoothly." 

L'nder the supervision of the new post 
wardens, who now number two for every 
itnportant building and every dormitory 
entry on the campus, lights were ex- 
tinguished everywhere almost before the 
alarm siren had ceased. Wardens, equip- 
ped with arm-bands and dimmed flash- 
lights, went to their posts in complete 
darkness. Those who were attending the 
Walden Theatre were forewarned, but the 
college ARP headquarters received no 
notification of the surprise black-out until 
10:00 P..V1. 

Professors Root, Franklin, and Shepard 
were statiimed at the Hopkins Hall center 
to direct tli*? ARP personnel, but the 
messenger service which has been institut- 
ed was not ta.xed very heavily by untoward 

Four- way Tie Reached 
In Intramural Softball 

The Intramural Cup tilt for the Softball 
crown swung into high gear yesterday and 
at present the Betes, the Chi Psis, the 
1-^. Phis, and the Zetes are riding the crest 
of the wave with unsullied records — three 
wins and no losses. The A.D.s, D.U.s, 
and Phi Gams are close behind with (mly 
one defeat on the ledger. 

T(nn Leary's homer in an early inning 
got the Zetes olT to a good start yesterday 
against the Phi Sigs and thc\- managed to 
rap hits out ccmsistently after that to win 
13-2. Closest game of the day was the 
Theta I )elts' triumph over the Psi II. 's 
7-2, but Bill Schlosser pitehid an adequate 
five-bit game and kept the T. fi.s safely 

Other games of yesterday were marked 
by lop-sided scores. Typical was the 15-2 
victory over the Garfield Club that Ted 
Richardson pitched for the Delta Phis. 
Games played earlier in the week were 
comparatively closer with few exceptions. 
One of the most even games was the battle 
between the Kaps and the Dekes, Dave

Brown Announces 
Purple Key Reform 

Managers Now Required 
to Hand in Receipts; 
Embezzling Prevented 

As a result of a reform passed at the close 
of the last college year, all members of the 
Purple Key are now being required to 
hand in receipts for all expenses they niay 
acquire during athletic trips, David W. 
Brown '43, president of the society, 
announced recently. 

Previous to this time, the undergrad- 
uate managers have merely handed in a 
report of their expenses, after first giving 
Albert V. Osterhout '06, graduate man- 
ager of athletics, an estimate of hoiv much 
they thought was necessary. Receipts 
for trip expenses were not demanded. 
Owing to the fact that in the past, a few 
inanagers have embezzled money, this 
recent reform will eliminate all oppor- 
tunities for taking money which should 
have been returned to the college. 

Election Date Clianj^ed 

In addition to putting this reform into 
practice, the Purple Key has also decided 
to change the date of election of officers, 
President Brown stated. At a meeting 
held on July '), the first of three such 
meetings to be held during the course of 
the college year, provisions were made for 
amending the date, in order to coincide 
with the Undergraduate Council election 
early in December. 

Also at this meeting, a new Executive 
Committee was elected, consisting of 
Edward L. Emerson, manager of lacrosse, 
Edward C. Brown, Jr., manager of foot- 
ball, and Thomas S. Kiernan '43, manager 
of basketball. The Executive Committee, 
compcjsed of these three men who represent 
sports of different seaso.ns, will be largely 
responsible for the Fall Dance, which the 
Purple Key puts on for the benefit of the 
training table. 

Brown also declared that no under- 
graduate manager will be working in Mr. 
Osterhout's office during the summer to 
handle the managerial reports and ex- 
pense sheets. Due to the comparatively 
light athletic schedule for the summer 
semester, the additional help of a student 
manager has not been considered neces-

Tennis Team Plans 
Curtailed Schedule 

Six Games for Varsity; 
Class Match Arranged ; 
Rockwood Goes Slowly 

With ill! indications at tlie opening of 
college pointing toward a comparatively 
quiet tennis season, a newly-organized 
court siiuatl, minus the services of Coach 
Clarence Chaffee, has now come up with a 
schedule that promises plenty of action 
for tennis enthusiasts. The team, headed 
by Captain Tod Hunt, took matters into 
its own hands ivhen no matches were 
forthcoming and, with permission of the 
authorities, arranged a full intcrscholastic 
and intramural program. 

Season Opens Tomorrow 

The varsity season will open tomorrow 
when the squad plays host to a compara- 
tively weak Dartmouth outfit. Ten- 
tative matches are also planned with 
Vale on August 14 and Trinity on August 
15, with return matches to follow later in 
the month with all threo schools. 

The six-man team will be made up from 
Captain Hunt, returning lettermen George 
Schmid and Dick King, Dick Hole, last 
year's freshman sensation, Dick Means, 
unofficial junior champion of Maine, and 
(iordon Michler, Les Havens anil Stu 
Wilson. Six slngl,,'s and two doubles 
matches will be plaj'ed. 

Bullock Coaching 

According to Uncle Ed Bullock, coach 
pro lent, and manager Jim Maninez, the 
prolileni of transportation will be taken 
care of by the members of the team them- 
selves. In addition to the regularly 
scheduled matches, the scjuad will keep in 
shape by playing; tennis clubs from Pitts- 
field and North .-Xdams and will send 
represent;vtives to tiie invitation Benning- 
ton Country Club tournament later in the 

Much interest is centering on plans for 
intramural tennis. The Department of 
Physical Education, in conjunctirn with 
the varsity squad, will sponsor an infr- 
class competition with anyone not plaj Ing 
on an interscholastic team eligible for 
participation. Pla>-ing in this tournament 
will partly fulfill rcciuirements for the new 
compulsory P.T. jDrogram and freshmen 
will receive their numerals as th^'y would 
for any other athletic activity. 

In the current Rockwood Tennis 
Tournament, the favorites continued an 
interrupted advance as the contest pro- 
gressed slowly. Topseeded Tod Hunt 
was extended to 6-3, f)-4 in a hardfought 
second round victory ()\'er freshman Lew- 
Lincoln. Dick Hole, favored to take 
second place, was in top form in disposing 
of Don Kendall, (:- 1 , 6-3. George Schmid 
and Dick Means, seeded numbers three 
and four respectively, have not yet played 
their first-round matches. Dee to in- 
sufficient data on the e.ntrants, only the 
first four contestants were secd.d.

Schuman Seeks 'People's World Congress'; 
Offers 'Design For Peace' At Conference 

After offering a "Design for a People's 
Peace" at the Institute of Public Affairs 
held last Saturday in Charlottesville, V'a., 
Prof. Frederick L. Schuman returned to 
Williamstown this week to begin circu- 
lation of petitions that seek to place a 
proposition asking for a World Convention 
of P'ree People on November's ballots. 
Petition Circulated 

Together with Dr. Philip L. Frick of the 
Williamstown Methodist Church and 
twenty-one interested men from Political 
Science classes. Professor Schuman has 
begun a campaign to secure enough 
signatures for his resolution to have it 
placed on the ballots of the next election. 
The resolution asks that the President call 
a Constitutional Convention of Free 
Peoples at the earliest possible moment to 
prepare a program for democratic world 

In addressing the University of Vir- 
ginia's Institute of Public Affairs, Pro- 
fessor Schuman argued for a merging of 
the present sovereign powers into a single, 
permanent world authority. Professor 
Schuman summed up the need for such a 
union when he said, "Only in this fashion 
can world politics be made an orderly 
process of compromise and planning for 
welfare and justice rather than a hideous 
nightmare of force and fraud." 

New Changes Necessary 

He went on to emphasize this point by 
saying, "Here is our best hope, and perhaps 
our last hope, to win the war by winning 
the peace through a free world order now." 
Professor Schuman proved this idea by 
showing that we are losing the war now 
and will lose the peace unless those in 
charge are willing to undertake new de- 
partures in the conduct of the war and 
formulate a peace plan that will be a 
principal weapon of victory. 

First step in the plan envisaged by 
Professor Schuman is the establishment of 
a supreme political council. He conceived 
of the council "as a provisional world 
executive to function in peace and war 
alike for the organization and direction of 
a world police force and for the rational 
planning of a post war economy." 

Eminent jurists of all the powers would 

publicity group, and formally enlist 
accepted applicants in whatever training 
program they choose. 

Phe preliminary survey, designed by 
Dr. Newhall to determine the number 
interested in the new Army Reserve plan, 
as well as in other programs, has not been 
tabulated, since all returns are not yet in. 
Dr. Newhall pointed out, however, that 
the Army plan is, in a sense, an experiment 
susceptible to radical change if student 
response does not warrant its continuation 
in the present form. 

Quota Might Be Lowered 

For this reason all those interested 
sh(]uld declare their intention immediately 
without waiting until the last minute 
before being drafted. Any institution 
which does not fill their assigned quota 
may have the surplus allotment trans- 
ferred to some other college in the same 
corps area. 

Mr. Perry emphasized that it is the 
intention of the Army to conduct their 
recruiting activities on a personal basis 
with each individual to insure a complete 
understanding of each man's particular 
abilities. The Health Center will be 
empowered to administer physical exami- 
nations, and a single liaison officer between 
the college and all branches of the armed 
forces will be appointed soon.

be placed in the world court that Professor named as the second requisite of 
his plan for world union. Such a court 
would be similar in function to that set by 
the Versailles treaty. It would, however, 
be backed by the authority and police 
force of the executive council. 

The third step in Professor Schuman's 
plan is the establishment of a Continental 
Congress of Legislators to draw up "A 
World Bill of Rights." Characterizing 
the Atlantic Charter as "pale platitudes," 
Professor Schuman said, "Without 
stronger aims than those of the Charter, 
we can hardly offer the enemy and con- 
quered peoples a better future than that 
which the foe promises." 

In closing Prof. Schuman dubbed 
sovereign equality of nations "a pre- 
scription for irresponsibility and inaction.' 
He said, "We shan't even begin winning 
the war, to say nothing of the peace, until 
some such steps as these are taken." 

Cru Lauds French 
Democratic Ideals 
On Bastille Holiday 

Schuman Urges Second 
Front, Condemns Policy 
of Vichy Recognition 

Prof. Jean N. Cru leaned over the 
speaker's table, his voice bareh' autlible; 
"The large majority of French jieople are 
democratic — democratic through and 
through," he said. "The French are as 
democratic as you and I." 

With free peoples throughout t he nation 
and the world, the Williamslown Com- 
mittee (if France Forever ceU'brated a 
French national holiday banned in 1940 
by the Vichy government, last Tuesday in 
the Jesup Hall Auditorium. Before a 
crowded audience of French sympathizers. 
Professor Cru, French-born veteran of the 
Battle of Verdun and president of the 
local group, outlined the ideals of the 
France Quand Meme movement and of the 
French people. 

"French Democratic Ideal" 

"The Statue of Liberty — ," he said. 
"That statue is now American, as Amer- 
ican as Mt. Vernon or Gettysburg. We 
all know she's a foreigner — born, con- 
ceived, and mounted in France — but 
there's a French democratic ideal behind 
that statue identical to the American 

Pointing to Bastille Day as "a mani- 
festation of democracy which therefore 
must now be taboo in France," Professor 
Cru emphasized that the purpose of the 
France Forever move "is not to gather 
funds, but to gather sympathy, men, 
women, minds, who, with us, are 
convinced that the armisiice was a sleight 
of hand." 

Schuman Speaks 

Professor Frederick L. Schuman, in the 
second principal address of the evening, 
likened today's crisis to that in the 1790's. 
"We are met in another age of world 
revolution," he said, "in which we are 
summoned as the price of our very survival 
to rededicate ourselves to Liberty, Equal- 
ity, and Fraternity." 

Professor Schuman, emphasizing the 
importance of our "fighting French" 
allies, condemned the policy of the 
department of state which continues to 
recognize the Vichy government, "the 
men of the counter-revolution who be- 
trayed France, who sold their country men 
to Hitler for thirty pieces of silver, who 
have set out to abolish Liberty, Equality, 
and Fraternity." 

Calls For Action 
Our leadership, Schuman continued, 
has attempted to fight a revolutionary war 
without using revolutionary tactics. Thus 
far we have envisioned a second front in 
terms only of men, guns, and ships. As 
long as it is so envisioned, he said, an 
effective second front will be impossible." 

Heuer, Davis Share 
Golf Medal Honors 

Both Men Set 150 Mark 
in Qualifying Round For 
College Championship 

Charlie Heuer and Pete Davis divided 
the medal honors in the qualifying rounds 
of the college golf tournament early this 
week when both men posted 36-hole totals 
of 150. Their scores set a mark for the 
rest of the field to shoot at, for the qualify- 
ing period does not close until Sunday 

Freshman golf champ a year ago and 
also runner-up for the college crown, 
Heuer put together rounds of 73, even par, 
and 77. The latter round included six 
birdies and a string of bogies. 

Playing more consistently than his 
sophomore rival, Davis finished with 
74-76 for his four over par total. There is 
a good chance that Davis can better his 
150 mark, for qualifying play is based on 
the best two out of three rounds. But 
Heuer will not get another crack at 
Taconic until match play starts, for he left 
Wednesday to enter the Philadelphia 
Amateur Championship in which he was 
runner-up a year ago. 

At present only two other men in the 
field share any possible chance of snaring 
the medalist honors from Heuer and I-)avis. 
They are Captain Fred Barnes and Bill 
Courter. The latter turned in a 78 on his 
first round of play and has failed to add 
another score to his total. Barnes fired a 
42-34 — 76 Thursday afternoon, hitting 
seventeen of eighteen greens but also 
having a good deal of putting trouble. 

Another distinct possibility in the tourn- 
ament is last year's champion. Bob 
McKee, who not yet entered a score. 
Lat year Da\is grabbed off medalist 
honors with 7(1-77—147. 

Sharpless '39 Killed 
Going from A ir Base 
To Tallahassee, Fla. 

While traveling on July 2 from Wilming- 
ton, N. C. to Tallahassee, Fla., Lieutenant 
Franklyn Sharpless '39 of the Army Air 
Force was accidentally killed near Thom- 
asville, Ga. The nature of the accident 
was not revealed by the Army spokesman 
who announced his death. 

Twenty-five years old, Sharpless had 
been an operations officer for an observa- 
tion stjuaclron at the air base at Camp 
Davis, Wilmington. He had received his 
preliminary training in Montgomery, Ala., 
after enlisting in the Air Force in 1941. 

Sharpless, whose ancestors came to 
Philadelphia with William Penn, was a 
member of Chi Psi. He played lacrosse 
in his freshman year, and was an excellent 
fencer throughout his four years at college. 

In 1937, he won the Gilwcll Wood 
Badge, highest honor of Britain's Im- 
perial Scout Association. Lord Robert 
Baden-Powell presented Sharpless with 
the badge for leadership in scouting and

Schuman Calls For 
Total War' View 
Of 'Second Front' 

Traces Enemy Strategy 
at First Union Panel; 
Newhall Praises Army 

hy Peter L). Sii.vkrstone '45 
Warning that tluTc can be no st'cond 
front this yrar or any year "so long as we 
leave its organization in the hands of mili- 
tary men ahjne," Prof. Frederick L. 
Schuman called for a program of revolu- 
tionary warfare as an integral part of the 
United Nations' "global strategy" at the 
Adelphic Union's first informal summer 
panel discussion held in Jesup Hall Tues- 
day night. Discussing "The People's 
War," Professor Schuman and Dr. Kichard 
A. Newhall, acting college president, both 
stressed the need for a united effort for 
victory, although they disagreed oti 
specific imperatives. 

Need Combination of Factors 

Addressing an audience comprised iil 
college men and townspeople, Professor 
Schuman declared that we are hamijered 
because we have not learned, as have oui 
enemies, to combine military, economic, 
diplomatic, iileolugical, and revolutionary 
resources, "Because of this — not for lack 
of determination, courage, or resources — " 
observed the political scientist, "the 
United Nations are still losing the war." 

Prof. Max l,erner, intended as the third 
member of the panel, could not be present 
owing to an attack of grippe. 

Dr. Newhall called his own experience;: 
in the last war "morally and spiritualh 
stimulating." Terming the army a 
"colossal for the achievement of B 
single purpose", Dr. Newhall spoke of 
leadership as a "moral obligation as well 
as a privilege." He advised new arnn 
recruits that "the best antidote to fear in 
the face of danger is some kind of action." 
Sees Archangel Drive 

Professor Schuman, in tracing step-by- 
step the Axis global strategy of "cutting 
off your enemy from his allies and then 
launching a frontal assault," predicted a 
combined Nazi-Finnish drive on Lenin- 
grad, Murmansk, and Archangel to

Undergraduate Council 
Changes Legacy Ruling 

S.A.C. Reduces Tax to $2; 
Treasurers to Collect 

In action taken this week the Under- 
graduate Council revised the legacy rush- 
ing rules, suspended the driving rule for 
Summer Houseparties, and strengthened 
the rule requiring the Class of 1946 to wear 
freshman hats. Alan G. James '43, 
president of the Student Activities Coun- 
cil announced this week that the S. A. C. 
tax has been reduced to $2.00 as a war- 
time economy measure. 

Starts In August 

The new S. A. C. tax will probabl>- 
appear on the August bills of the sixteen 
social units as provided by a ruling passed 
last spring that designated house trea- 
surers as collectors of the tax. The 
reduction was made possible by the greatly 
reduced expenses of the member organi- 

Legacy Problem 

Following Record editorial recommen- 
dation that the law "injuring the chances 
of non-legacies of getting the house of 
their choice" be stricken from the books, 
the Undergraduate Council eliminated 
preferences for legacies on bid lists, but 
left intact the rule providing for the 
publication of a list of all legacies, direct 
or indirect, and the rule which states that 
freshmen cannot pledge houses of which 
they are legacies for five months, if they 
do not do so pledge night. 

Driving Ban Lifted 

From 12 m. Friday the .seventh of 
August until twelve midnight August 9 
the in-town driving rule will be suspended 
for juniors and seniors. The U. C. also 
announced that the band ceiling has been

"With careful conservation of chemicals and apparatus by students, existing sup-

strict conservation plan. 

WI'B Order Nec<led 

Originally given an A2 rating by the 
VVI'li, to enable the deparlnient to obtain 
chemical supplies, Williams is now unable 
to get delivery on many badly-iunled 
chemicals. Acetic acid, ammonia, cork, 
magnesium, and rubber represent the 
vital shortages. This is due to the fact 
that since giving Williams an A2 niting, 
the WI'B has erected a superstructure of 
special classifications on top of the old 

May Revise flourses 
Coinciding with this dangerous shortage 
is the crying need of the nation for tniimd 
chemists, and the increasing difficulty of 
giving proper training. Minor revisions 
in courses, necessitated by lack of mai.r- 
iais, are contemplated unless needed su|i- 
plies arrive. There is little prospect '.f 
delivery of even the most common chcii;i

captain, Charlie Heuer and Bob McKce 
head the college contenders. 

The entrance fee is $6 and includes the 
tournament dinner this evening. An 18- 
hole qualifying round is on the card for 
today and match-play rounds take |)lace 
tomorrow and Sunday, with the finals 
Sunday afternoon. 

College Championship 

The college championship ran true to 
form through the first round with all the 
favorites advancing. Defending cham- 
pion McKee and Fred Barnes had tight 
squeezes while co-medalists Pete Davis 
and Charlie Heuer piled up convincing 

Bob Maxfield took McKee to the 
twentieth in a see-saw affair before losing 
to a par. McKee came from behind to 
square the match at the fourteenth, then 
the pair halved five holes in a row. Barnes 
came from behind to take the seventeenth 
hole and a one-up margin over Bob Wright. 
Heuer ^hips Schlosser 

Heuer was one over par to defeat Bill 
Schlosscr, 5 and 4, and Davis trounced 
Bill Todd, low freshman in the qualifying, 
8 and 6. 

Other victors were Bill Courier, Tom 
Hoover, Don Lindsay and Munro Steel. 
Steel put out Al Waycott, the only other 
freshman to make the title sixteen, with a 
bird on the eighteenth.

Local Rubber Drive 
Collects 13^ Tons 

High Praise Given Town 
by Officials in Charge; 
Service Stations Help 

In cooperation with President Roose- 
velt's nation-wide rubber conservation 
program, the Williamstown Salvage Com- 
mittee amassed 13^ Ions of scrap rubber 
through a drive concluded two weeks ago. 
'The material, ranging from hot wati'r 
bottles to automobile tires, was turned in 
at nine hical filling stations, where the 
contributors received a cent a pound for it. 
High Praise Given 

High praise was accorded the committee 
by John I. Taylor, executive .secretary for 
the Massachusetts Bureau of Industrial 
Conservation. In a letter to Wallace 
Green, chairman of the salvage com- 
mittee and assistant treasurer of the 
Willimstown Savings Bank, Taylor said, 
"It is gooti to hear that one of the most 
beautiful towns in Massachusetts is also 
doing one of the most outstanding jobs in 
the state on salvage work." 

Special credit should be awarded to 
Gordon J. Bullet t, |)roprietor of the Gulf 
Station, Green pointed out, because of his 
excellent work in organizing collection of 
the scrap at the various filling stations. 
Bullett is in charge of the salvage of metal 
and rubber for the local connnittee. 
U. S. O. Receives Funds 

According to the President's plan, the 
salvaged rubber will be bought from the 
nation's filling stations. Since some of the 
scrap was ccmtributed without compensa- 
tion, money paid for this donated rubber 
will be turned over to the U. S. O. to 
finance entertainment for the armed

Faculty Wives to Use 
Gym Twice A Week 

Lasell Gymnasium is to be set aside 
two nights a week for members of the 
faculty, their wives, and children. As the 
result of the announcement of Dr. Edwin 
A. Locke, director of athletics, the gym 
doors will be thrown open for the inaugural 
time tonight, and on all subse(|uent 
Tuesday and Friday nights throughout 
the summer, principally for the women 
and their children. 

The present coaches and faculty locker 
room will be reserved for the men, with 
the visiting team rooms and the main 
showering facilities turned over to the 
women. Swimming Coach Robert B. 
Muir, under whose general supervision the 
project now rests, announced today that 
the pool would be attended by a student 
lifeguard, probably sophomore Richard A. 
RafTman, and that the chemistry of the 
pool would be revised to acctmimodate the 
extra load of the summer month!!. 

Freshman paiticipation in varsity 
sports, for a long time a subject of debate, 
became a reality last Friday when the 
Faculty Committee on Athletics struck 
from the books the traditional | rohibition 
against freshman eligibility for varsity 
competition. Their action, precipitated 
by a Ciargoyle resolution presented to 
President James P. liaxter, 3rd, last 
Friday, was appro\-ed by the trustees the 
following day. 

Haiined For 2.5 Years 

In a year already noted for precedent- 
breaking, the liars were let down for fresh- 
men for the first time since World War I, 
when the original prohibition first went 
into eflfeet. In lifting the twenty-five 
year old ban, the Committee on Athletics 
provided for substantially the same con- 
ditions of competition as those recom- 
mended in the Gargoyle resolution 
published in 'The RECORD last week. 

'Tlie new rule is essentially "an emer- 
geiii)- measure of a temporary character," 
to continue in force until "further action" 
is deemed necessary. Probably most 
sports will be organized on a two-squad 
basis, the first sc|uad to provide material 
for the varsity, the second to furnish men 
for a jay-vee team. 

Amherst May .Act 

.Amherst, which agreed last s])ring to 
follow Williams' lead in the matter of 
fresliiiian eligibility, was informed ol the 
recent action early this week in a letter 
from ,'\cting President Richard A. Newhall 
to President Stanley King. Presumably 
Amherst will follow suit, though it has 
been agreed that freshmen will not be 
allowed to play in the baseball game there

Trustees Vote Holiday 
On Labor Day Weekend 

Move Commencement; 
Richmond Given Chair 

In their first summer meitir.g in the 
history of the collegi' the Board of Trustees 
approved the proposal to niaki' the 
Satunlay before Labor Day a holiday, 
moved Commencement from Sunday, 
February 21 to Wednesday February 17, 
and at the same time issued the calendar 
for the spring and summer terms of 1943. 
They also aiipointed Prof. Donald E. 
Richmond as Frederick Latimer Wells 
Professor of Mathematics, the position 
vacated by Dr. James G. Hardy, who 
retired last semester. 

Grudiinleil From Coriiell 

Dr. Richmond was graduated from 
Cornell in 1920 where he remained as an 
instructor in Physics until 1922. He was 
then appointed research engineer for the 
American Telephone and Telegraph Cor- 
poration, but in 1926 he received his Ph. D. 
from Cornell, and after teaching mathe- 
matics there for a year, he was called to 
Brown where he remained until 1926. 

In 1926 Dr. Richmond worked as a 
National Research Fellow, and the follow- 
ing year he came to Williams as Assis- 
tant Professor of Mathematics. In 1940 
he was promoted to a full professorship and 
became chairman of the department. Dr. 
Richmond is the author of numerous 
articles, and among his published works is 
The Dilemma of Modern Phyiics. 

New 0>inmenccnienl Dale 

The new Commencement date was set 
as a result of the government request that 
events likely to cause heavy railroad 
IMissongcr travel be scheduled during the 
week. The new calendar approved by the 
trustees calls for classes to begin on March 
1, 1943, and run through June 1, Examina-

Still More Progress Needed 

Last weekt'iid Williani.s uiRlergraduates, faculty, and trustees 
jointly contributed to the solution of a wartime athletic problem con- 
froiiliiig the college. After full con.sideration, the college took swift 
action to make freshmen eligible for varsity competition. But still more 
progress i.s needed before Williams' uthletic program will most effectively 
condition nu-ii for military .service. 

CompuLsory 1'. T. has taken a step in this direction, but calisthenic 
offerings on a once-a-week basis fail to provide a complete conditioning 
])r()grani. The Navy has found that obstacle races best condition men 
iiol yet oil active duty, and Princeton has already utilized this method 
ill lis eonipuLsory physical preparedness classes. Williams can easily set 
up an obsliicle course on college property in the Cole Field area at an 
expense trifliiifi; in com])arison to the results obtained. 

With the growing jiossibility that the draft age may be lowered, and 
witii the ever iiieroasing need for perfectly conditioned men, Williams 
will have to further intensify its conditioning program in future weeks. 
We are certain that the college must soon require each undergraduate to 
participate at least Jitv times per iveek in an all-out body-building effort. 
With that immediate goal in mind, we recommend the adoption of obstacle 
races in addition to the calisthenic, inter-squad, and intercollegiate athletic 
activities that are now being utilized to condition Williams men.

world anything better," he remarked. 

In the discussion period which followed, 
l)r, Newhall minimized the importance of 
revolution, declaring that "an assurance 
of success is all thai is necessary. But 
added "we must be prepared to sustain 
terrilic losses." Professor Schuman dis- 
agreed, pointing out that the Germans 
lost i)nl> 150,000 men in the entire W'estern 
canipaijjn, owing to their superior organi- 
zalion of fifth columns, diplomacy, and 
psychological disorder. "We can win by 
blind, brute slugging, Ijut this is costh , 
wasteful, and unneccessary," said he. 


liecause of an error which crept in 
between the Prize Commiitee's decision 
and the printing of the Gnuluation Pro- 
gram, C. Gorham Phillips ''^^ was listed as 
the winner of the Henry Rutgers Conger 
Memorial Literary Prize, instead of the 
rightful winner, ('.. IVri-ie I'liillips 'l.'J. 
Both men were notified of the error 
Wednesday by Prof. Franzo CrawfonI, 
chairman of the prize committee. 

According to a recent survey made by 
the President's office eighty-four under- 
graduates have signed up in various 
branches of the Navy, nineteen in the 
Marines, and six in the Army Air Corps. 

Statistics show that Williamstown ad- 
herents to the slogan "War Bonds lor 
Victory" are legion. Participation in the 
drive to sell the bonds has been so strong 
that the town has scaled the $60,000 mark, 
a figure twice its prescribed moiitlils' (piota. 
The heavy sale of G lionds, recently in- 
creased in value, has been resiionsible for 
the excellent results, explaiiuil Wallace

With the East Indies, Burma, Malaya, 
and the Philippines in Japanese hands 
"thanks to the Anglo-American policy of 
appeasement," China has been isolated 
and India is endangered, declared Pro- 
fessor Schuman. He pointed out that 
Russia is similarly endangered by the 
Japanese occupation of the western 
Aleutians. "The frontal attack on China 
is now on. Russia will be next, then 
Britain, and finally, the United States, her

Singling out Finland, France, and

have full relations with Mannerhcini, 
Laval, and Franco. "Our State Depart- 
ment is the major olistacle to our effort at 
present," said Professor Schuman. 

Reiterating that we give the 
people of Burma and India something to 
fight for, Professor Schuman urged the 
immediate declaration f)f a worltl federa- 
tion as the chief instrument in stirring up 
revolt in the Axis "buffer areas." "Wc

If you want to learn to firf ii rifle, if

their places in the Army, the State (juard 
is willing to form and train a special squad 
of college men," said Captain Mears, 
ihairnian of the chemistry department.

he were going into the Regular Service,"

The requirements have been set by the 
state and include a thorough physical 
examination which is given by the com- 
pany physician, Major Vrooinan. "A 
candidate must be over 18 and ijrobably 
under 60," said Captain Mears. An 
oath of allegiance to the Union and the 
Commonwealth is also required, "We'll

branches of the armed services are a

"Well," concluded Captain Mears, "you 
can (|Uote me as saying that we've got the

clashes are Heuer vs. Courier, Davis vs. 
Lindsay, and Steel vs. Hoover. 

Qualifying scores ran lower this year 
than in recent trials. Although the medal- 
winning score of 150 hung up by both 
Davis and Heuer was three strokes off 
Davis' 147 last fall, six scores were 
bunched under 160 and another three men 
scored at least one round in the seventy

Since the summer production schedule 
of the A. M. T. is already lilled, the next

WMS Broadcasts 
Soft-Ball Contests 

Reception of Program 
by Undergraduates Will 
Decide Its Permanency 

The soft-ball game last Wednesday, in 
which the faculty squad defeated the Phi 
Sigma Kappas, was the first of a series of 
such soft-ball games to be broadcast by 
W. M. S., according to Robert W. Hinman 
'43. president of the college network. 

Whether these broadcasts will hold a 
permanent position among the station's 
programs will depend upon the response 
with which they are greeted by the stti- 
dents, Hinman added. If these broad- 
cases are enthusiastically recei\-ed, 
W. M. S. will probably announce at least 
two intra-mural games a week, he .said. 
Limited Broadcasting Scope 

Owing to the fact that the station has 
not yet been able to obtain the e(iuii)ment 
necessary for broadcasting any games held 
on Cole Field, the games announced will 
be limited to those played on the lah 
cainpus. This means that for the lime 
being, W. M. S. will broadcast only 
faculty games or matches between the 
highest-ranking fraternity tjams. 
Announced In 'Adviser' 

Hinman revealed that it was first de 
cided to announce these intramural 
games at one of the station's weekly 
Executive Meetings last May. He de- 
clared that whenever a game would be 
broadcast, notice would first be given in 
the Ath'iscr. 

In addition to these soft-ball contests, 
another new program will be tried out by 
W. M. S. Entitled "Meet The Under- 
graduate", this program will be a fifteen 
minute version of \'ox Pop. Three 
students will be informally interviewed on 
Spring Street by the master-of-ceremonies 
Edwin (lasperini '4.S, e\'ery Monday 
evening between 9:00 and 9;1,S. 

'Meet the Undergraduate' 

After chatting two or three minutes 
with these students, Gasperini will ask 
each one of them to name his favorite 
popular tune. This record will then be 
played by the control-operator in the 
studio on the fourth floor of Jesup Hall. 
"Meet The Undergraduate" will take the 
place of the old "Mike's Melodies" 
program, Hinman stated. 

Hinman also spoke of the great help 
that Alan E. Eurich '45, founder of 
W. M. S., lias been in the running of the 
network. .'Mthough Eurich formerly con- 
centrated on the technical end of the 
station when in college two years ago, 
Hinman said that he was now working in 
the production department and was in 
charge of the weekly radio play. 

The last competition oi)en to sopho- 
mores for both the business ami pioduction 
departments of W. M. S. will begin some- 
time next week. Hinman declared.

CO. Camp on N.W.Hill 
Holds Four Members 

Unknown to most residents of Williams- 
town a small c.imp for conscientious ob- 
jectors on detached duty hits been in 
operation here since early May. The 
four men constituting the camp have been 
living in an isolateil farmhouse on North- 
west Hill, while working at the U. S. ex- 
perimental forest operated by the Fed- 
eral Department of Agriculture. 

All of the objectors, former holders of 
good positions in civilian life, nosv work 
from 8:00 p.m. to .S:00 p.m. for the 
nominal pay of $2., SO a month. Two of 
the men have received m:isters degrees 
from Cornell University. Oiu' studied 
ichthyology and the other earned his 
degree in pomology. One man was a 
truck gardener in Maryland, and the 
fourth is a farmer's son from Ohio. 

Often the men work overtime without 
compensation, stated Harold E. Ford, 
the resident supervisor of the experimental 
forest. The four men do the work of 10 
CCC boys and are more willing workers, 
he claimed. "They don't seem to care 
how long they work," he added. The 
men help with the growitig of pines, 
poplars and other trees, ;is well as pump- 
ing nutrients into the soil and similar 

Allowed the freedom of any other gov- 
ernment workers, the objectors cook their 
own food and culti\';ite their own garrien. 
although one of them has a car, they do 
not travel frec|uenily and seldom go be- 
yond North .'\daiiis. Occasionally they 
express their \iews in long discussions 
with Superxisor Ford, but they never give 
their opinions to others, coming in contact 
vvith \ery few |)ersons in Williamstown. 

All four of the men are former members 
of other camps for con.seientious objectors. 
Two came from a camp in North Carolina, 
one from Ashburnham, near Fitchburg, 
and the other was formerly a member of a 
camp in Cooperstown. N. V.

Bowman, filling the Imsl-s. John Uriiige- 
water, who till then had h.ul a perfect 
day at bat, failed in the clutch, fanning. 
Then the fireworks staned. The thir<l 
baseman hobbled Captain Hill Schmidt's 
grounder, allowing Dolan to counter. A 
scratch by (nnwier Hayes, a pair of hits 
to right by Al Ueilly and Holt Bangs, and 
an outfield error put Williams within two 
runs of the Indians. Hut Dolan brought 
the rally to a sudden close when he slashed 
a grounder at the third baseman for the 
final out, leaving Reilly and Bangs 
stranded on first and second. 

KridKCwiiter Gets Triiilc 
The Indians wasted little time in taking 
the lead, picking up two unearned runs in 
the first. But Williams came right back 
in its half of the canto. Ford singled 
to right, and went to third as Donovan 
hit through the shortstop's legs. Bridge- 
water then lashed one of Lenny Fried- 
man's offerings into tleep left center field 
for a triple and he completed the circuit 
when the relay went astray. 
Top Greylock A. C 
Dartmouth tied the score in the second 
on an error and then put on their winning 
barrage in the fourth. Four safeties, two 
walks, and a pair of errors spelled defeat 
for the Purple. 

Wednesday in a twilight encounter 
Williams defeated the Creylock A.C., 5-4. 
in ten innings. With two out in the last 
of the tenth Schmidt walked, stole second, 
and came home on Hayes' sharp smash 
into right center field. Donovan hurled 
until he was relieved in the seventh by Al 
Swain, who receives credit for the win.

The material salvageti in this recent 
drive is being stored temporarily at filling 
station tank yards in Pittslield. All 
future contributions of scrap rubber 
should be sold to the junk shops, not 
Idling stations. 

Before the President's program was 
announci'd live hundred pounds of rubber 
and metal were collected at the box office 
of the Walden theater. Calvin King, 
owner of the theater, cooperated with the 
Williamstown Welfare Association b\' 
ruiminga special movie program for which 
the admission price was a donation of 
scrap rubber or metal.

Legion Is Cooperating 
in National Collection 
Drive for Old Records 

Continuing its co-operation with the 
Williamstown Committee of Public Safot>' 
and the American Legion, the College 
Defense committee is working on plans 
f.^r the CPX war games and the national 
phonograph record collection drive. 

The CPX war-games were postponeil 
on orders from State Civilian Defense 
authorities, and will take place probably 
in the first week of August. Suggestions 
already made to the A.R.P. post-wardens 
and further instructions will be published 
later and broadcast by WMS. 
Wardens on Alerl 

Since all the problems for local offense 
forces are secret and sent out from head- 
quarters, it is impossible to tell what the 
college personnel will be called upon to do. 
During the CPX period all wardens should 
wear their arm-bands and be on the alert. 

At the start of tha CPX period A.R.P. 
messengers should report to the district 
warden on duty in Hopkins Hall. Arrange- 
ments are being perfected for a system of 
liaison ,vith various parts of the college 

Records Gulled For 

Broken, cracked, or discarded records 
are wanted by the American Legion to 
secure the material needed to jiroduce 
records for the U.S.O. recreation centers 
among the armed forces. With raw ma- 
terials cut off by the war such a collection 
is neces.sary to meet the demand. 

Room-to-room collections have been 
organized, and letters reiiiiestiiig co-opera- 
tion have been sent to the heads of the 
social groups. An additional box for the 
de|)osit of records has been ], laced at the

1945 'Gul' Competition 
For Editorial Board 
To Begin Wednesday 

The second and final sophomore com- 
petition for the Gul Editorial Hoard will 
get under way next Wednesday, July 29, 
in the Gul office in Jesuj: Hall, and will 
last for five weeks. 

Because of resignations from college, 
oidy two members of the present sopho- 
more class remain on the Board, leaving 
all positions on the next year's book wide 

At the conclusion of this competition 
all board members will compete for ihe 
four major editorial positions: Editor, 
Managing Editor, Senior Associate Editor, 
and Assignment Editor. Final results 
will be announced by Thanksgiving, and 
this board will |>ublish the Gul in their 
junior year. 

Not only will the Cui commemorate the 
150th Anniversary of Williams in a special 
section, but its editors also hope to 
portray Williams' part in the war. They 
expect to utilize an incri-ascd number of 
pictures and candids, and will stress an 
informality of treatment which it is hoped 
will represent accurately the Williams of

the mountains around the campus. Ac- 
cording to Leonard C. Thompson '43, 
Chairman of Trails and Cabins, an effort 
will be made during the next week to 
break trips into smaller and more flexible 
groups than have been leaving in the past. 
Members of the Williams community

P. T. Credit to Be Given 
Student Farm Workers 

Two Days in Local Fields 
to Equal Three in Gym 

Considering the present farm labor 
shortage "really tragic," the Williams 
Athletic Department announced this week 
that sophomores, juniors, and seniors 
working on neighboring farms would be 
given P.T. credit for the time put in. 
Dr. Edwin A. Locke, director of the de- 
partment, addctl, however, that even 
though freshmen were encouraged to help 
if needed, they could not be excused from 
the closely directed P. T. training for the 
farm work. 

Freshmen Not Kxenipl 

Though he considered the outdoor 
manual labor "very healthful " Dr. Locke 
stated that under ordinary circumstances 
the wi iver of the compulsory athletics 
rule would not be made. He pointed out 
that the skills of contact and defense play 
now considered so important were es- 
sentially found only on the athletic field 
or in the planned physical curriculum. 
This is the reason exemption has not been 
granted the freshman class. 

The permission to turn in time sj^ent on 
local farms as athletic credit will be grant- 
ed on a monthly basis, one day's obliga- 
tion being ftilfilled for an afternoon's 
auxiliary farming, and the whole week 
cancelled if two afternoons are turned over 
to the local land owners seeking aid 

The loss of a number of freshman 
volunteers expected as a result of the "no 
credit" ruling will not crip|)le or slow the 
college end of the .student-farmer agree- 
ment, according to Albert V. Osterhout 
'06, who is directing the project from 
his position as executive secretary of the 
Student Aid committee. At present of 
the sixty-five undergraduates signed up 
for work, onU twenty-two are first 
men . 

Claude Thornhill Signed 
For Dance, August 7th 

Summer Houseparties 

Will Hear 6 Vocalists 

Center of attraction for house parties 
this summer will be Claude Thornhill and 
his band, leaving an extended engagement 
at the Glen Island Casino to play from 
9:30 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Friday, Aug. 7, in 
the Lascll Gymnasium. 

The noted pianist brings with him six

recently at the Meadowbrook, Hotel 
New \'orker, and the Hotel Pennsylvania. 
As present plans stand the dance is to 
be informal, admission being $3.00 a 
couple and $2.00 per stag plus tax. 

Lighting arrangements have been sub- 
stituted for the drapes used in former 
years, and all other arrangements possible 
are being prepared to keep the gymnasium 
cjol for the dancers. Although no definite 
plans have yet been made, there is a 
possibility that the Octet will sing..

One week ago four Softball teams sli;ired 
an undefeated status at the top of the 
intramural league, but at the conclusion 
of play this afternoon, the Delta I'his 
alone had yet to meet with their initial 
defeat. The Chi Psis and Zetes both u ere 
beaten by the Garfield Club, whili' ih(. 
Betes nose-dived, taking three in a row un 
the chin, after winning their first three. 

Highlighting the week were two twelve- 
inning pitcher's duels. In the first, Den- 
ver Williams bested Ziggie Steel, as ihe 
D.U. nine broke through to score one x<m, 
and beat the Betes 2-1 in the tweltih. 
Dick King pitched beautiful ball for the 
Zetes against the Garfield Club on Wed- 
nesday, only to have his infield fall apitrt 
after an even dozen frames. Norni 
Arnstein hurled for the Club, and although 
he gave up thirteen hits, including three 
in the first-inning, he was untcmchable 
in the clutches. Rod LaBombard blasted 
a fourth-inning homer, which was e(|ual- 
ized by Brad Cook's single in the last of 
the sixth. Then the Club pu.shed across 
two markers to win 3-1. 

On Tuesday the A.D.'s eked out :in 
eight-inning win over the Garfield Chih 
when pitcher Tom Hoover stepped lo 
the plate with two out, and crashed a 
game-winning single. The D. Phis wire 
on the brink of their first defeat yester(la\ , 
when with two out, and the bases loaded, 
freshman Don Stone lashed out a grass- 
cutter that went through the Bete out- 
field, to wipe out a 2-0 deficit, to win 4-2. 

Intrasquad rivalry on the freshman 
baseball team reached fever pitch this 
week as team A, captained by Phil Cady, 
cemented its position in first place by 
whipping Ted Perry's C team, 4-2. Bill 
Wenzel's triple featured a first-inning, 
three-run onslaught. A has won three 
games and U)st one, while Perry's squad 
and team C, led by Bill Shellenbergcr, 
have one victory and two U)sses. Four 
members of the squad, Al Dulcan, Pal 
Higgins, Bernie LeSage, and Jim Young 
have been working out with Charlie 
Caldwell's varsity.

Seven Hits As Nine 
Tops Amherst, 6-3 

5-Run Third Inning Whips

Drives in Three Tallies 

liy Dave Thurston '44 

Comini; to life in the third inning with 
a five-run onslaught, Williams' basi'hall 
combine took the nifasurr of Amherst, 
6-3, Saturday on Pratt Kield behind the 
airtight pitching t)f converted shortstop 
Bill Donovan. Tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. 
on Weston Field the nine faces the Cone 
Automatic Machine Company team in an 
attempt to make it two in a row over the 
stale semi-pro champions. 

Donovan vs. Smith 

Scattering seven hits over si.\ innings, 
Donovan out-pitched Kollo Smith, who 
was seeking his third win over the l'ur])le 
in as many years. A \ear ago he defeated 
Ed Spaulding, 3-2, in a ten-inning pitching 
duel and again this spring he won out 
over Satch Lare, 8-3. Hut it was a dif- 
ferent story Saturday. Until he gave 
way for a pinch hitter in the fourth, tlv 
Ephs had touched him for all of their 
eight hits and six runs. 

Big Williams Inning 

Amherst took a brief lead in the bottom 
of the first inning when Ed James walked 
and Jack Peck tripled him home. But in 
the third Williams pounded five runs across 
the plate, adding another in the next cant 
for good measure. Successive singles by 
Fran Dolan and Bob Kittredge, a John 
Bridgewater double, and another trio of 
bingles olT the bats of Captain BillSchmidt , 
Gunnar Hayes, and Dick Emery put the 
game on ice. 

In the fourth Kittredge walked, took

'Trial by Jury* Staging 
Scheduled for Sept. 18 

•Fall of the City', One-Act 
Play, is also Planned 

Trial by Jury, the Gilbert and Sullivan 
operetta first produced in London in 
1875, is to be presented on the main stage 
of the Adams Memorial Pheatre Friday, 
September 18. In charge of the singing 
cast are Director of Music Robert G. 
Barrow and Charles L. Safiford, directoi 
of music, emeritus. 

Joaquin Nin-Culmell, assistant pro- 
fessor of music, will direct a group from 
the college orchestra, and Max Flowers, 
director of the A. M. T., will stage the 
production, and will produce on the same 
program an Art of the Theatre one-act 
play, Archibald MacLeish's Fall of the 

Heenehan '46 in Lead 

The setting of Trial by Jury is a court of 
justice, in which a breach of promise case 
proceeds amusingly and tunefully to a 
typically Gilbcrtian conclusion. The 
important role of the Judge will be taken 
by Paul Heenehan '46, and that of the 
Plaintiff by Miss Evelyn Haun of Adams. 
Her Counsel will be George D. Lawrence 
'43, while Associate Professor S. Lane 
Faison, Jr. holds the part of the Defendant. 
Munro H. Steel '45 plays Foreman of the 
Jury, and William E. Lane '43 is the busily 
singing Usher. The Misses Evelyn 
Smith and Vera Battey of North Adams, 
and Miss Barbara Holt of Williamstown, 
have roles as bridesmaids. 

A singing jury of eleven voices has been 
picked from the members of the Glee Club; 
a seventccn-voicc chorus made of singers 
trained in the Bach Choir will also parti- 
cipate in the production. 

Buell Will Oppose Rep. Treadway 
In First District G.O.P. Campaign 

Williamstown Factions Prepare For Bitter 
Liberal - - Old Guard Republican Primary

Rival Republican factions in Williams- 
town, fourteenth largest town in a First 
Massachusetts District where l<e|)ul)lican 
nomination virtually means the con- 
gressional seat, are preparing f(ir what may 
be one of the most bitterly contested 
political campaigns in recent history. In

challenged Allen T. Treadwa)', old guard 
representative of twenty-nine years stand-

Statement by 'Time' 
" — The histories of Messrs. Buell and 
Treadway, as well as that of the llrst 
Massachusetts District will be determinc-d 
in a ding-dong scramble in the next nine 
weeks," said 'lime magazine. "Last wrck 
Amateur I\)litico Buell seemed to have ai 
least a fifty-lifty chance." 

Buell, announcing his candidacy, blaslcd 
party politics in war-time in a statenuiu 
lij Time, and emphasized that "Congress 
)nust be revitalized and strengthened. 
Many voters fear that the Republican 
Parly is .slowly dying," he pointed oul. 
"This argument cannot be met by the 
passage of resolutions. It can be met by , 

sending to Congress a number of younger 

and more alert Republicans, with clear-cut 

convictions on world and social problems."

"Banker, insurance company director, 
hotel owner, 'Preadwax- has been an able 
peace-time servant of his c<mBtituents,"

He opposed arming Guam Naval Base, 
the revision of the arnis embargo, neutral-

Baxter In England 
After Secret Trip 

College Trustees Extend 
Leave; Nature of Task 
Shrouded in Censorship 

In England after a secret trans-Atlantic 
crossing by air is President James P. 
Baxter, ,1rd, Deputy Coordinator for the 
United States Office of -Strategic Ser\-iccs. 
In order that he may h.ivo sufficient time 
to accomjilish his mission in the Hritish 
capital, expected to take several weeks, 
the trustees of the ollege have v^ted to 
extend Dr. Baxter's leave of absence until 
October 11, when he will return to Wil- 
liams to assume his presidential duties on 
a live day weekly basis. 

Left Liisl Werk 

Dr.Baxter left in the midilleof last week, 
and presumably will establish contact 
with the Psychological Warfare Organi- 
zation of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, possibly 
through the recently appointed United 
States Minister William Phillips, who was 
attached to the United .States Embassy in 
London two weeks ago. He may confer 
with Brenda Bracken, who holds a iMsition 
in the British government similar to the 
one occupied by Ur. Baxter at Washington. 

Trip Dniler CfiinorHhip 

'Phe exact nature of Dr. Baxter's 
assignment cannot he discussed in detail, 
due to censorship regulations, but it may 
be governed by President Roosevelt's 
military order of June \i, 1942, which 
stated that the Office of Strategic Services, 
under Colonel William J. Donovan, was 
authorized to "collect and analyze such 
strategic information as may be required 
by the Joint Chiefs of Staff," and to "plan 
and operate such special services as may be 
directed by the United States Joint Chiefs 
of Staff."

'The Army's At War' - Are We? 

Wf're .still lo.sing this war, and losing it Al'lcr seven months 
ol' liiiniiliating delcats, and with no apparent prospect of better days 
aiiwid, we're still going to the movies when we shonld have rummaged 
for tiiat |)iece of rubber "that wouldn't have made any difference anyway": 
kicking because wie have to walk to work or stand in trolley cars; trying to 
buy bootleg tires;l)eggiiig filliiig-slatioii operators for gas without punches; 
lei ting Congress sacrifice national welfare for minority interests. "The 
Army's at war — I know," a former Williams student now training in 
\'irginia describes the public spirit. "Whether America is, I'm not .sure." 

While the public clamors for a second front, its thinking is still 
oiiiiilaled around The Williatnstown Post Office has a "De- 
fense Window"; the victrola record recei)lacle on Spring Street is "For"; .\dmiral l.eahy hopes his new will hclj) in America's 
"defense." When everyone knows that only offense will win the war, 
when everyone knows the United Nations must .soon open a .second front 
ill Knrope, imisl the Munich mentality coiiliniie to iilagiie American 

Vihul's Wrong — Here 

We at Williams haven't done well by this war. 

We, with college students everywhere, have had the responsibility 
of proving onr institution's right to live in a world at war. We have 
hardly kept thai responsibility when a resident of Williamstown can 
honestly think: "Here at Williams there has been no effort to .sell any 
War Boiiils what.soever." We have hardly kept that resixinsibilily when 
we can jiay hundreds of dollars for liou.sei)arty bands alone, but haven't 
paid on the line for that twenty-five cent War Stamp we've been meaning 
to buy since June. Nor have we ke])t that responsibility when w<' regard 
menil)ersliip in a reserve as an ()i)porluiiity to oat, drink, and be merry, 
rather than as an opportunity to train menially and physically for the 
fight ahead. 

One college jiajHT editorialized July 2,'5: "Then people started to kill 
eac-h other across llie ocean, iuid the college had to si)ee(l up its program .so 
that its boys could have the honor of being killed earlier." There will he 
Nazis in Wa.shington if that's an example of the American 
l>eo])le's war spirit. ,\nother universily is capitalizing on the war effort 
to run a piibheily campaign. There, in mock patriotism, freshmen are 
being steamrollered into various branches of the armed services as .soon 
as lliey eiiler, and, to quote another college editor, "The confu.scd reserv- 
ist will find himself with two years of liai'd-eariied deferment in which lo 
decide which branch of the service he should have joined." 
What We (an Do About II 

There isn't a great deal Williams men can do to correct what's wrong 
with the American war spirit, biil we can correct what's wrong here. are just a few of the things which represent the minimum we can 
do if we are to deserve victory: 

1) The "atrocities" of Hell Week can be completely aboli.shed by 
.swift Undergraduate Council action. Fraternity induction proceedings 
should be restricted to formal initiation and the memorizing of pertinent data. Fk'onomy of time and money, the necessity for emphasizing 
.scholarship over ridiculous slimts, the obligation to face present events 
.seriously and rationally all make the abolishment of the old Hell Week 
ab.sohitely es.sential. 

2) The Uiulergraduate Conneil can take immediate steps to make 
certain that Williams will iiol have another formal hou.separty until 
.\mcriean troops enter Herliii. Inexpensive (lances, supplied with 
recorded music, are sufficient in wartiine. 

:5) College organizations like the Adelphic Union, France I<"orever, 
llu.ssian War Relief, the Williams Lecture ('ommittee, etc., can combine 
their forces to jirovide the college once each week with a program of 
.sjieakers on war conduct and aims. Messrs. Lcrner and Schuman arc 
among the best, but are certainly not the only excellent speakers on the 
faculty. Williams physici.sts, geologists, economists, historians, etc., 
surely have vital information and oijiiiions which will help undergraduates 
prepare their thinking for a warring and post-war world. 

I) Every Williams man can buy regularly each week a certain 
amount of war stamps. One house treasurer is already securing pledges 
from fellow members to some stamps each week. If a man feels 
he cannot afford this, let him keep a cash account for a week and see how 
many es.sential expenditures he really has. 

.'}) Every individual can practice strictest economy for the duration. 
Profit-making organizations .should follow the News Bureau's lead and 
allocate profits in the form of war stamps to those men who do not have a 
pressing need for cash. 

There's nothing particularly original or dramatic in these .suggestions. 
Editorializing won't win the war. All the editorialist can do is to carry 
on the dreary business of pointing out what everyone should know by 
now: that if we don't act, and act now, we will be lost.

Williams Has Lost 'Joe College' Atmosphere, 
Claims Cabe Prindle, 'Sage of Spring Street' 

by OhiVF.v. J. '45 

"TIk' colk'ge lias clinn^rcd ; it's noi. near 
the |)lac-o it used tu bo," Calx- IViiullc, tin- 
patriarch of SjjriiiK Strivt sigliod wistfully, 
upon Ix-ini; asked to compare tlio uiuler- 
ijraduates of today witli tliose in coJU'^te 
at tlie tiiiu' of the last war. 

Cabe, who has passed forty-three of his 
sixty-one years on Sprin),' Street, and who 
claims to know the nami'sof 1500 Williams 
ihnuni, continued, "\'ou don't see stu- 
dents around now like you used to. The 
old fellows were a lot older and nialurer 
iliaii the ones here now."

lie paused. "Well, 1 don't really 
.iippose that the boys, themselves, have 
■.hanged an awful lot, but it's the change 
iliat has come over the college." Cabe 
lurned to his friend, Howard Barrett, for 
t'oidirmation of this st.itenient. Howard, 
who has lived in Williamstown practically 
as long as Cabe, and who has worked in 
almost every place on Spring Street, agreed 

"The thing is," he declared, "that the 
college is a lot harder than it used to be. 
The students don't have the free time now 
that they once did. Hack in the '20's, a 
smart guy conid go through this place 
without cracking a book. N'ou'il never 
have found a light on in a dormitory afler 
ten p. m. Where were they? Why. over 
in North Adams, most of 'em." 

Spriiifs Slr«'<'l llenclu'H 

"An<l all over Spring Street," Cabe 
liroke in. "Iwery night the street used to 
be crowded with students. There was 
never an empty seat on the benches in 
front of my place. 'I'lie Spring Street 
benches they were called, and no freshmen 
were allowed to sit on them. And those 
bowling allies I ran back in '17 were 
packed every night. I can remember 
the pin-boys complaining, 'Ain't >'ou 
students ever going to go home?' lint now. 
hardly any of the students ever bowl or 
play pool any more. They're in their 
rooms all the time now."

to see students studying on Sunday night." 

"Yes," Howard agreed, "when Tyler 
Dennett became president, thijigs began 
to ehauge. Nobody had any time to loaf 
around. It's kind of too bad, too. because 
the boys don't have the Siime interest in 
athletics that they used to. Kvery game

for the games |)layed away from home. 
What's more, both the students and the 
townspeople were hero-worshippers in 
those days. \ou never saw a W on a 
sweater turned inside-cjul then. They 
used to wear big block W's right on their 
chests. And if they hadn't, the students 
and local people would have resented it." 

"What the college has lost," Cabe 
interrupted, "is some of its old atmos- 
phere. The boys were really collegiate 
then. Know what I mean? Joe College, 
they were. Kvery third nvin in the college 
sported one of those big raccoon coat.s. and 
I remember once when A. M. Uoseidnirg 
came up here one fall, and sold eiglu\' 
seventy-live dollar suits in two (hiys. NDw 
they wear overalls." 

'TliiiiKlcr-iiiiifr' Kurruge 

".'\nd how they used to let loose wluii 
spring rolled around!" Howard resumed, 
as Cabe turned to dip two chocohUe cones 
into the dish of sprills. "They'd wreck ;i 
dormitory every year, and th,- codet'e 
inthorities more or less expected it. Il 
■.v isn't so long ago that they would tie tin 
old 'thunder-mugs' (toilet-pots) to tlr 
roof iif ICast College, and k't Hy at 'em with 

slliil i;uns." 

Il spile of this somewhat nostalgic 
renii'iiscing, however, both Cabe and 
How, nil agreed that such activities would 
seem .disurd :iow. "The boys are a Icjl 
(|uieter," Howard admitted, "but the\ 
are also a lot smarter and better behaved 
than the old fellows. The old grad.i used 
to havi' a lot fun, but all that's changed 
iu)w. Colleges arc changing with the 
world, and all the old horse-pl.iy is on its 
way out.

Army Order Will Not 
Influence Flying Club 

The recent order of the Army Air Corps 
prohibiting non-essential flying along a 
coastal strip from Maine to Virginia (hies 
not affect the activities of the Williams 
Flying Club, according to a statemem 
made by Charles (1. Abbott '43, president 
of the organization. Airports k)cated in 
the restricted area will lie closed down 
in the lU'ar future, Abbott said. 

Although the Plying Club is not in- 
fluenced by the new ruling, Alibott es- 
plained that college fliers will still have 
to follow a flight plan stating the purpose 
of each flight. Pleasure flying will not be 
permitted, but members may fly for 
instruction or Civil Air Patrol purposes 
within a three nnle radius of the Airport. 

Unaffected by Ration 

Gasoline rationing dues not hamper the 
activities of the club, Abbott revealed, 
because the oidy stipulation is that pur- 
chased gas lie used for airplane, not auto 
mobile consumption. 

Failing to get Army permission earlier, 
Abbott was not able lo fly his Taylorcraft 
cabin plane to Williamstown froniArmonk, 
N. Y. until last .Sundax . The plane and 
equipment will be a\ailalile for use this 
weekend, he stated. 

John F. Place e\-'43, former member of 
the Flying Club, is now working as an 
instructor at the Troy, N. V. airport, 
Abbott said. He recei\ed his instructor's 
rating last weekend and gave his first 
lesson that same day.

No Wartime Politics 
In an early appearance in Williamstown 
iwo weeks ago, Buell emphasized the role 
Congress must play in winning the war and 
insuring a lasting peace. Pointing lo the 
need for regeneration of the Republican 
Party, he affirmed the necessils of main- 
taining a strong minority, but again 
warned against war-tinu- polities. 

At the Hotel Wendell in Pitlsheld 
Wednesday evening, Buell deplored the 
lack of congressional debate on I he conduct 
of the war, and asserted thai while con- 
structive criticism has been offered the 
President through newspaper anil radio 
services, "they are no substitute for an 
alert and helpful Congress." 

Plenty of action is expected from local 
committees during the ne.\t si.s weeks.

Loss of 5 Men Causes 
Unprecedented Action 

Unprecedented in the history of WMS 
was the decision by the station's Kxeculive 
Council last Tuesday to let sophiiinore 
members of the production board compete 
for the position of assistant production 
manager, William R. Witherell '43, chief 
of the production staff announced today . 

Until the present time, only junior 
imnnliers of the board have been aUowed 
lo enter the competition for production 
and assistant production niaiuiger, With- 
1 rell went on. .'\lthough sophomore pro- 
duction board members may now compete 
for the secondary position, only the juniors 
are as yet permitted to compete for the 
post of production manager. 
Lost 5 Men 

This move li\ ihi* Executive Council was 
caused by the departure from college of 
Edward W. lilanchfield, John N. DulTield, 
Harold k. Holmvard, Paul C. Wells, and 
Bruce B. Winter '4i, all members of the 
production board. Owing lo I heir absence, 
it was fell that the sophomore board mem- 
bers should at least be alloweii lo compete 
for the lesser of the two positions. 
News Program At 11:00 

T"he production manager also stated 
that WM.S plans to have a five-miimte 
broadcast of world news at eleven o'clock 
e\'er\' idghl. This will be followed b\' 
another fi\e minutes of campus news.

ably get under way some time next week. 

Witherell declared that steady progress 
is being made with the Willidms in Ihe 
U'lir program. Sixty letters have heeii 
sent out lo alumni in the armed services, 
asking the receivers to reply lo Theodore 
G. Melzger '44, now in charge of this

Four-thirty downpours on Mondav', 
Tue.sda)', and Wednesday played havoc 
with intramural Softball this week in 
cutting a twenty-game schedule e.xaelK- 
in half. Conclusion of play yesterday 
afternoon found the Delta Phis firnd\ 
entrenched in the number one slot with 
their nearest rivals, the Chi Pais and 
Zetes, deadlocked a game and a half in 
the rear. Shifts in the second, third, and 
fourth positions are conspicuous as the 
Phi Gams took two on the nose to drop 
to a lie for sixth position. Counter- 
balancing this were the two hard-fought 
victories fur the Zetes, lifting them into a 
tie for the rumuT-up post. 

Outstanding among the week's games 
were the Kaps' 1-0 upset victor\' over 
Phi Gam and the Zetes seventh imiing 
•clutch' triumph over a scrap|)\' Beta 
squad. I he Kaps fielding rallied to the 
support of Dave Bradley in preserving 
his second shut-out of the year. A 
seventh inning double play built around 
an outfield fly and a close play at the 
plate b\ Johnny Rust nipped the Phi 
Gams' attempt to tie the score. 

Tom Hul'finton with a towering triple 
in the first of the seventh sent two Zetes 
scampering across the phite to gi\ e pitcher 
Dick King the nod in a tight duel with the 
Betes' Xiggy Steel and a to 5 victory. 
The heretofore hapless Dekes became 
conspicuous by breaking into the win 
coliunn for the first time in handing the 
Sigs a (> lo 2 licking. Numerous errors 
and sl(ipp\ playing was prevalent on both 
teams with the Dekes' Ted Brown and 
Sigs' Hob Nelson trying to stem the tide. 

Thi' Delta Phis' pitcher Ted Richardson 
deser\"es a palm for his fine hurling in 
leadiuL; his team to easy victories over the 
Theta Delts, 6-1, and the Psi U's, S-0, 
and l^gi^^ering his second shut -out of the 
current campaign. 

The order of the da\' for most of the 
other games seeilietl to be s!opp\' and I'rror- 
ridden playing, the margin of victory more 
often than not resting <in poor fielding. 
The Theta Delts lay temporary claim to 
the title in the error department having 
connnitted seven miscues in one inning of 
the Chi Psi game. 

Killer Keller and the nine 'old men' of 
the faculty ball club fell back before the 
onslaught of rainy wi'ather twice this 
week in tlndr abbreviated two-inning 
contests with the Zetes and Chi Psis. 
Yesterday, not to bi' denied again, they 
bested the Garfs in a niiu'-inning duel to 
the tune of 6 to 4. Pitcher Keller at 
times had trouble finding the plate, but 
timely hitting by his t<'anmiatesand timely 
misplays by the opponents combined to 
set the profs one step nearer to the 
mythical campus crown. 

lnters(|iiad rivalry on the freshman base- 
ball team for the past week was allowed 
to cool with all scheduled games rained out. 
The inters(|uad league will terminate its 
seas(m by the end of next week.

Only 75 Students Have 
Hiked for P.T. Credit 

Surprised that more hiking had not been 
done for P.T. credit, J. F^dwin Bullock, 
assistant professor of physical eilucation, 
yesterday revealed that only sixteen trips, 
nund)ering seventy five undergraduates, 
had been taken since the jirograin of re- 
c|uired athletics began this semester. 

The (jlacier Lake Trail has been the 
most popular hike from the point of view 
of number of students with two hikes 
totaling sixteen participants. Four hikes 
h;ive gone to both Pine Cobble and 
PoH nal, but only fifteen ami nine students, 
respectively, have made this journey. 
Largest single hike was to Bee Hill on 
July 9 when thirteen undergraduates took 

Mr. Bullock said that the physical 
education department has left the conduct 
of these hikes to the Outing Club. Under 
the supervision of William C. Brewer, Jr. 
'43, president of the Outing Club, the 
hikes leave Jesup Hall in the early after- 
noon, returning to the campus in time for

Means Upset by King 
In Rockwood Tourney 

Dick Means, seeded fourth in the Rock- 
wood Cup Tournament, sulTered a stun- 
ning reversal at the hands of Dick King 
Wednesday in the first major upset of the 
competition. After dropping the first 
set, King rallied strongly with accurate 
baseline drives and consistent backhand 
smashes to win 3-6, 8-6, 6-3. 

Tod Hunt, captain of the varsity, 
breezed through Fred Dalzell to the tune of 
6-1, 6-3, and George Schmid, seeded third, 
beat freshman George Wright in a long 
struggle, 6-2, 9-11, 6-4, in the other 
quarter-finals matches. The winners of the 
Dick Hole-Bob Stone and Frank Wozen-

Dr. Kinsolving Will 
Speak This Sunday 

General Topic for Next 
Month to Be 'Christian 
Faith in a Democracy' 

"Christian Kailh in a Democracy" will 
be the main theme of the second series of 
four chapel sermons discussing spiritual 
problems in wartime, revealed the Rev. 
Dr. A. Grant Noble, college chaplain 
today. Last Sunday's .sermon was the 
concluding talk in the first series, which 
was centered around the topic "Chris- 
tianity in a World at War." 

Two Types of Talks 

The Rev. Dr. Arthur L. Kinsolving, 
rector of Trinity Rectory at Princeton, 
N. J. and former chaplain of Amherst 
College, will begin the second series 
Sunday, when he speaks on "What Christ 
Means To Us I'oday." The program has 
been arranged so that the first and third 
speakers will discuss their topic from a 
personal, intimate standpoint, while the 
second and fourth preachers will deliver 
their subjects from a theoretical, intellec- 
tual viewpoint. 

Each minister has been chosen because 
he is particularly suited to discuss his 
topic and can give students "something to 
carry away with them," said Dr. Noble. 
"It would be very difficult to find," he 
pointed out, "four better speakers on 
religious matters in the country." Stu-

Farmer —City Slicker Animosity a Legend; 
Students Herd Sheep, Pitch Hay, Raise Blisters 

The famed animosity between the fanner and the city slicker is no more than 
a legend in Williamstown; the pitchfork and the pen go well together. After 
Bi'veral weeks of life, the Williams College .Student-Farmer plan seems to be working 
out to the complete satisfaction of both parties: the farmers like the under- 

gr.icUuites they have seen and the boys like their bosses. 


Til • fanner si<le of the picture is repre- 

senttiti ,\ly given by milk producer Dan J. 

(ialusli.i of Williamstown, who so far, has 

been llic largest user of students for field 

work. I Ic recently stated to The Record 

that he nnisidered "this plan a fine one. 

I've been using the boys right along and 

I'm talking my neighbors into it. The 

boys don't seem to be afraid of work, and 

that's one thing we have lots of." 
'riiirty-Twii Workers 
Though the use of the college labor has 

been curtailed by the recent rains, the 

seasonal nature of the work, and the gas 

rationing that keeps many farmers from 

coming in to town to pick up the substitute 

hands, thirty-two of the sixty-five regis- 
tered undergraduates have seen action in 

the fields. Sevenil of the local farmers 

have written Albert \'. Osterhout '06, 

executive secretary of the .Student Aid 

Committee, who is administrating the 

project, saying that ex iii though they have 

not yet called for ai<l, ihey plan to do so 

later in the season when their crops get too 

heavy to handle. 

Shovels, Korks, Sheep 
The work laid cnit for the Williams 
farmers has been \aried, ranging from 
digging topsoil from under a prospective 
hen-house, through hay pitching and sheep 
herding, to the chopping of weeds and 
grass around the 1896 House, local 


Organization of Allied 
Aid Further Defined 

The purpose of the recently formed 
Allied Relief Committee is to arrange a 
schedule of events, consisting of group 
projects and individual programs by the 
various war relief organizations, explained 
the Rev. Dr. A. Grant Noble, chairman, 
in a recent interview. China, Great 
Britain, Greece, Holland, and Russia are 
the five members of the United Nations 
represented in the committee. 

"Each individual committee," said Dr. 
Noble, "will remain intact to present pro- 
jects for the specific relief of one nation." 
From time to time there will be Allied 
Relief group projects, such as the tag day 
scheduled for Saturday, from which the 
proceeds will be shared equally by the five 
organizations. The allied committee was 
formed as a result of suggestions by towns- 
people and chairmen of the various relief 

Benefit for Chinese Relief 

An individual project for the benefit of 
Chinese relief will be presented by the 
United China Relief committee next 
Wednesday, Prof. James B. Pratt, chair- 
man, announced. The program for aiding 
the United States' ally is a lawn-party at 
the garden of Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Botsford 
on North Street. A fortune-teller, mys- 
tery side-show, baby show, and refresh- 
ments are among the attractions included 
on the program. Mr. Botsford is a 
graduate of the Class of 1882. 

Nine Meets Jeffs 
In 2nd Encounter 
Tomorrow at 2:30 

Donovan Will Hurl Again; 
3 Freshmen Play in 6-1 
Defeat by Conomatics 

by Dave Thurston '44 

Coach Charlie Caldwell's up-and-down 
baseball team meets Amhersl tomorrow 
afternoon at 2:30 on Weston Field in the 
sole Saturday athletic attraction of house- 
party weekend when it tries lo make it 
three straight over the Sabrinas since 
Rollo Smith's 8-3 victory earh this spring. 
Twi' weeks ago Bill Dimovan's strong 
right anil set the Jeffs down with but seven 
hits .fiat lered over six innings, and accord- 
ing Id all pre-game plans, he will be on 
the mntiiid again timiorrow. 
Lally on Mound 

Ctiplain Jack Lally or Smith will be 
the opposing pitcher, with Lallv likely to 
get the nod as he held the Ephs hilless 
for five innings in their previous meeting 
this summer. Smith, although twice 
victor over the Purple in seasons past, 
was touched for all of the Ephs' eight 
hits and six runs before being relieved by 

Last Saturday's 6-1 defeat at the hands 
of the Cone Automatic Machine Company 
nine saw three freshmen in the line-up, 
as Coach Caldwell took advantage of the 
new freshman eligibility ruling. Bernie 
LeSage was behind the plate, with Jim 
Young and Al Dulcan playing first base 
and shortstop. 

Rally Stops Williams 

Going behind by a run in the first of 
the second the Purple came back to tie 
the score in their half of the canto. But 
a four-run Conomatic rally in the fifth 
coupled with another counter in the 
ninth were too much for the weak-hitting 

Williams' sole run in the last of the 
second was unearned, as were the four 
Conomatic tallies in the fourth. Gunner 
Hayes walked, took third on Young's 
sharp single to left center, and completed 
the circuit when the center fielder allowed 
the ball to pass him. 

Bridgewater Oats Double 

The Ephs' only other threat came in the 
last of the eighth, when they garnered 
two of their four safeties. Donovan led 
oflf with a single to right. Dick Emery 
looped a sure hit over second base only 
to have center fielder Lynk race in and 
rob him with a sensational shoe-stting 
catch. John Bridgewater kept the rally 
alive with a resounding double to left 
center, sending Donovan to third, but 
Captain Bill Schmidt and Hayes both 
fanned to end the spurt.

Application Is on File 
For N.Y.A. Student Aid 

Scholarship Men Given 
Chance to Earn Cash 

Application for student aid from the 
National Youth Administration funds was 
filed this week by Mr. .Albert V. Osterhout 
'06, head of Student Aid. Although the 
plan for helping college students was 
initiated last year, it never was put into 
full effect at Williams. 

Under the N. Y. A. system students are 
employed in campus administration work 
such as mimeographing and clerical 
assistance. Each month ti work card 
detailing the time spent on each job and 
total working hours is compiled by the 
Student Aid office for ever\ student re- 
ceiving assistance. 

$20 Monthly Limit 
This card is sent to Boston N. Y. A. 
headquarters, and a check is mailed 
directly from Bo.ston to the individual 
.students. A limit of $20 per month is 
placed on the earnings of any single 

In effect only four months last year, the 
program enabled 39 scholarship men to 
cam extra money for their education. A 
total of approximately $1,500 was paved 
to Williams students. 

This semester's application calls for a 
larger appropriation than last year's, but 
because of the limited funds with which 
the N. V. A. is operating, the Williams 
allocation will probably be reduced, A 
decision will be made within the next few- 
weeks; and as soon as Mr. Osterhout re- 
ceives definite word, the plan will be put 
into effect. 

Fraternities Will Pay 
Electricity Charges 
Through CBM Set-Up 

Strict Economy Urged 

/ly CiEOWiK y . Nkhrhas, '44 

In one of the first significant niox'os 
toward reducing fraternity expenses, Frank 
R. Thorns. Jr. '.W, manager of Campus 
Business Management at Williams Col- 
It ge, announced today that sa\'ings up to 
$1200 ytarlv for Williams houses have 
been made possible by a new .igreement 
between the college and the .Northern 
Berkshire ('.as Compans', which supplies 
electric service to the W illiamstown area. 

Under the new setup the college will 
pay one monthly bill covering electricity 
charges for the fraternities as well as for 
all its btiiltlings. The fraternities will be 
billed by and pay to Campus Business 
Management their proportionate charges 
at the special college rate, and CBM will

Makepeace '00 the total amoiint due from 
tlu' houses.

"CUM is ideally set up to act in this 
litiison capacity." said Manager Thorns 
tcda\, "and by doing so will free the 
college ireasurer's ollice from the burden 
of .iclcling considerably to its already heavy 
bookkeeping duties." 

.Negotiations for the agreement, which 
ha\e been going on for several months, 
were completed in time to institute the new

Perry Starts Reading 
Classes for Freshmen 

Five Week Course Begins 
on Monday, August 17 

William G. I'errs, assistant to the Dean, 
is this week sending notices to all members 
of the Class of 1946 whose scores on the 
reading tests given during the orientation 
program indicate that they wimld benefit 
from instruction in reailing skills. Sixty 
students took the course last year and 
registered an average iniprovement of over 
fifty-seven percent, although in individual 
cases the figure ran as high as two hundred 
per cent. 

The course is entirely optional, and the 
first organization meeting will be held 
Wednesday, August 12, in Goodrich Hall 
at 3:00 p. m. The course will be described, 
a film used in the instructiim will be shown, 
scheduling of hours will be arranged, and 
students wishing to do so may apply. The 
final selection of abimt thirty men will 
be made on the basis of how badly the 
instruction is needed, and the number of 
reading cimrses in which the applicant is 
enrolled. A second course will be given 
next semester for those who are rejected 
at this time. 

The course runs live weeks, with three 
classes a week of one hour each. Hut if a 
student applies onl>' half of his measured 
gain, he will have got back the fifteen 
hours in study lime saved before the 
course is over. There is a charge for the 
course which covers the cost of materials, 
but scholarship men ma>- make special 

Those iK-rniilted to lake the course will 
be notified a week from today, and regular 
classes will start on Monday, August 17.

tiic fall of 19 10, or for a "pome," "Hou.separtie.s on the Eve," written in

itorial of last fall. 

The houscparty story for .Vugnst 1942 is on page one. The .story 
behind that story, a 2()()-word "Eat, Drink, and 15c Merry" editorial, 
might have a])pearcd here. It won't. "The Importance of Not Being 
Earnest" is now obviously an anachronism. For the time we find 
our.selves disapproving a weekend of unnecessary ex])enses, a weekend 
wlicn Williams might have raised thousands of dollars for guns and 
bullets, hut instead is being credited by the Amherst Sliithmt and others 
with a "more acute and universal i)arty instinct." Now this space is 
reserved for more serious comment — this week and other weeks. 
Is The P. T. Program Working? 

,\t the beginning of the pi'cseiit term, the physical education de- 
l)aitnieut initialed compulsory I*. T. for all, witii drills in calis- 
thenics re<(iiire(l of each undergraduate once a week. It was a wartime 
step, taken in response to the .\rmy's ivcjuest that all colleges cooperate 
in the drive to put .Vinerica's youth in loj) physical .shajjc. It was a .step 
which we con.sider a half-way measure, uiiwortliy of the tradition of a 
college I'ouikUmI by a soldier. 

With the Uini already nearly half gone, there are still some .students 
will) liav<' never attended a calisthenics drill. There are many more who 
parlici|)ate in some sport only once a week at the most. Students in 
beginner's golf, for cxaiiiple, hit around thirty balls a week in farcical 
pre|)arati()n for the gruelling demands of the armed services. And very 
few have acted on the physical education department's suggestion that 
each student inaugurate a complementai'y training ijrogram of his own. 

The undermanned ])hysical education de|)artnient is doing the best 
it can. iVlost of the ras/xmsihility for llie iinsalisfadury state of affairs falls 
III! the iiiiliridiiul student. In fact, i)robably no amount of enforcement 
could produce any beneficial effects in the physical condition of those 
undergi'ailuates who have neither the physical nor mental energy to 
comply with a college regulation which is of national im])ortance. 

The poor jjliysica! condition of a good many students at Williams is 
i)ad enough. The nieiilal attitude it implies is worse. We are at war, 
and losing. We won't win this war until each individual makes up his 
mind to accept iiis own responsibilities. We won't win this war until, 
as one professor' [)iits it, "we prove we are capable of accepting the re- 
s|)oiisibility of cilizen.ship in a democracy by always endeavoring to do 
more than is re(|uire(l." Then, and oidy then, will the collective force of 
these indi\ idual resolutions add up to victory. 

No One Will Like This 

.\o one will like this editorial, for it criticizes us all for participating 
in an unnecessarily ex|)ensive houscparty. It criticizes undergraduates 
for their rcsponssc to the j)hysical pre])aredness jjrogram, and the ad- 
ministration for its failure or iiiai)ility to make that program more 
coniprehensive. We might go on to criticize the facts that attendance at 
good lectures on the conduct of tiie war is amazingly slight, that some 
students consider reserves as one last opportunity for an all-out fling, 
that few students buy war stamps regularly. But we get rather sick of 
criticizing ourselves for a laxity we've all seen for months but haven't 
yet done anything about. 


Amherst- Williams Relations 

To The Editors of Tmo IlFcom): 

This weekend the varsity baseball team will play a second game 
with Amherst. The whole college is well aware by now of the unpleasant 
incident which occurred during the July game at Pratt Field. It is un- 
fortunate that .so many athletic contests with Amherst in recent years 
have been marred by similar events. While it is no doubt true that bad 
feeling has existed at times between the athletes of the two colleges, 
nevertheless the spectators frequently are equally responsible in encourag- 
ing and inciting brawls. 

After the Amherst-Williams ba.sketball incident last spring, Charles 
H. Tower '12 wrote an excellent letter to Tiiio Recokd on a similar 
subject vvliich, unfortunately, was pretty generally ignored. He pointed 
out that an ardent desire to win does not necessarily include poor sports- 
man.ship, unfair tactics, or bad manners. Most athletes participating 
ill any sport generally agree that unnecessary argument, personal animos- 
ities, and bad feeling detract from, rather than add to, the gratification 
of winning or the enjoyment of competition. 

Both the Williams and Amherst teams are anxious to avoid in the 
future any repetition of certain past experiences. It is our desire to 
play a hard but clean game this Saturday. Therefore we would greatly 
appreciate the cooperation of all Williams students and guests in re- 
fraining from unnecessary hooting, jeering, and personal remarks which 
might only serve to delay the game or create bad spirit between the two

part of an extensive program of prepared- 
ness, ilesigneil to copo with any possible 
disaster. Air raid defense ineclianisnis 
liave lieen perfected, and plans for tlie 
rcceptioii and care of evacuees liave l)een 
completed. I'actories in the Williams- 
town area working on war contracts have 
been put under semi-military police 
protection and Kovernnicntal supervision. 
I'^iriners, hard-pressed by the local labor 
shortage, are receiving work aid from 
Williams students. (See story on page 1.) 
Aid tu U. S. O. 
Specific steps already taken to aid the 
national war effort incliifle the present 
drive by the Williamstown air raid 
wardens, under the direction of Elmer ('■. 
Noble, to collect old phonograph records. 
This campaign has a dual purpose: (1) to 
provide a source of reclaimable shellac to 
supplement the government reserve, fast 
diminishing since the Japanese conquest of 
the Ease Indies; and (2) to provide 
revenue for the USO by the sale of the old 
recordings. The Salvage committee is 
also collecting fats from which glycerine, 
valuable in the manufacture of explosives, 
may be extracted. 

Another aid to. the nation's war indus- 
tries is the proposed tin can drive which 
will be under the general supervision of 
Wallace K. (ireen, chairman of the local 
Salvage Division of the Massachusetts 
Commiitee on Public Safety. At present 
this committee is providing fre.' deinon- 
stiations in canning techniques, stressing 
the eeononiical use of sugar. 

b'ollowing an order by Ciovernor Lev- 
erett I.. Saltonstall, Professor Mears is 
condueiiiig a survey on the needs of every 
oil burner in Williamstown and the possi- 
bility of conversion to coal. In the face of 
a threatened fifiy per cent rcductiim in the 
available fuel oil supply, it is important, 
according to Dr. Mears, that adecpiate 
heating plants be' provided to prevent 
freezing of plumbing facilities ciuring the 
winter, as well as to protect the general 
public health. 

I'repureil ftir KvueiuM's 
I*rovisions have been made for c.iring 
for more than 150 evacuees, who will be 
registered in the gym.nasium, given metlical 
treatment at the post olifice or Thompson 
Infirmary, possibly housed in college 
buildings, and probably fed at various 
Williamstown churches. 

.-\ir raid precautions in Williamstown 
begin at the connmmicaiions center, where 
four private telephone lines are kept open 
twenty-four hours a day. In case the 
"red light" should l)e flashed from Boston, 
It least thirty calls woulil go out over this 
communications netwcrk simultaneously 
with the warning blas.s of the various 
sirens and bells. In all of Williamstown 's 
fourteen districts blackout regulations are 
enforceil by speciall\- ili'imtized air raid 
wardens, who have been trained in the 
techniques of dealing with homljs and 
gases of all kinds. 

In the event of an .utual attack, first 
aid heatlquarters will be established in the 
basement of the post olfuv; ambulances, 
170 emergency vehicles, and demolition 
squads, will be standing by to assist in 
rescue work; specially trained police and 
firemen will supplement the regular forces; 
and decontamination crews will deal with 
any poison gases. I'lans arc now toeing 
developed for a system of short wave radio 
communication in case the telephone net- 
work is put out of order. 

The Committee on Public Safety is 
organized to deal with such accidents as 
the recent nearby crashes of Army 
Bomljers, and has set up mountetl patrols 
for duty in difficult terrain. Ski patrols 
have also been organized to operate 
throughout the winter.

Students not using their bicycles this 
weekend are advised to leave them in the 
basements of college dormitories, for there 
have been an increasing number of bicycle 
thefts on the campus. Students are also 
asked this weekend to lock doors and 
windows to their rooms.

Golfers Drop Match 
To North Adams C.C. 

Dick Baxter's varsity golf team suffered 
a 7^-4^ setback at the hands of North 
Adams C. C. Wednesday in the first of :i 
series of matches with nearby country 
clubs. In the first foursome Fred Barnes, 
Williams captain, and Munro Steel teamed 
to good advantage to down Bing Hunter 
and Dave McClelland, 21-^. Steel canned 
a four foot birdie putt on the final green 
to halve the back nine and clinch the 

Bill Todd, one of two freshmen on the 
squad, tiiul Bob Wright brought home the 
other two jioints with Todd getting the 
best nine hole round of the ilay. He 
toured the tricky nine-hole North Adams 
course in 3,S the second time aroitnd. 

The Bob Maxfield-AI Waycott and 
Joe Lee-Chuck ^'eiser pairs were blanked. 
Four mainsta\s, Pete Davis, Charlie 
Heucr, Don Lindsay and Bob McKee, 
were unable to make the trip for the 
twilight match. 

Lindsay advanced to the finals of the 
college championship last week with a 
victory over Stwl. In the only other 
match played McKee, the defending 
champion, ousted Captain Barnes 2-up 
in the quarter finals. Lindsay will meet 
the winner of Monday's Heuer-McKee 
match for the title. 

Selective Service 

{As an aid to iiuderslandiiig the opera- 
tion of the Selective Service Act, to prevent 
undue alarm concerning the processes of 
induction, and to clear up misinformation 
liased on unfounded rumors, The Record 
publishes the following condensed analysis 
of the draft system, released by Acting Presi- 
dent Richard A. Newhall. — The Editors.) 

Registration — Registration of all those 
eligible for inililary service includes 
everyone between the ages of twenty and 
fort\'-five. Registration cards are num- 
bered by Int. 

'Questionnaires — General Stdective 
Service questionnaires are then sent out 
according to these tissigned nund)ers. 
(These are not the occupational question- 
naires, which are also distributed through 
the Selective Service System, but which 
have nothing to do with the draft.) 

Preliminary classification — E\'er\'- 
one is immediately classified when the 
c|uestionnaires are returned to the local 
draft board. Married men with dependents 
are automati(';ill\ deferred and phiced in 
class III-A. .All others are tent;itively 
placed in ]-A, unless it is shcjwn that they 
are necessar\- in some occupation closely 
connected with the public health and 
interest, or with national offense. No 
formal notice of this tentative I-A class- 
ification is sent to the registrant, but 
according to his number on the I-A list 
he will receive an order to report for his 
fir'-l physical examination, which is called 
a "screening." 

Physical — The "screening" is a super- 
ficial medical examination which includes 
a blood test. Nearly ewry man passes 

Definite classification — E\er\ 
classified as tentative I-A, who passes 
the "screening", is, at the meeting of the 
local board following the "screening", 
classified as definite I-A, and a card to 
that effect is sent to him. On receipt of 
this card he has ten days in which to ob- 
ject to such classification if he has good 
grounds for objection, and, if necessarv', 
to appeal from the decision of the local 
board. Otherwise he remains on the list 
of those subject to call. 

Call for induction — When the local 
board gets an order to send a quota of 
men to the Army, it selects the men from 
the list of eligibles according to their 
serial numbers. An order to report for 
induction is sent to these men ten days 
before the date of induction. .After re- 
ceiving such order a man cannot enlist or 
ask to have his case reconsidered. At the 
induction center each man is given a 
thorough physical examination. If he 
passes this he is enlisted immediately and 
sworn into the Army.

Alumnus Gives Needed 
Chemicals to Williams 

'Record' Article Brings 
College Two Truckloads 

With the arrival of several hundred 
dollars worth of eheinicals, nuwt of them 
unobtaiiialile ill i resr'nt, the crucial 
shortage of chemicals in the IJep.irtinent 
of Chemistry has been relieved. Second- 
hand, they are a gift to the college of an 
alunnuis ttho foiuid himself in a position 
to help Williams with two large truckloads 
of both organic antl inorganic supplies. 
.Some stocks will be enough to last ten 
years, Prof. John K. King predicted. 

The alumnus became aware of the 
critical situation through an article written 
by a Record reporter, which app.'ared 
two weeks ago, and was reprinted in the 
public press. "Beyond any doubt, Wil- 
liams now has the finest dye collection 
of any college in America," said Professor 
King, "thanks to this timely donation." 

At the same time negotiations with the 
WPB to secure a badly-needed analytical 
balance were net succeeding so well. 
The balance contains a small amount of 
brass, but the necessary priority rating 
has thus far been denied. In resi)onse to 
his request for the balance. Professor 
Kijig received the following communica- 
tion from the WI'B. "It is the policy of 
the War Production Hoard to endea\or 
to keep all iiislivutinns in operation at their 
pre-war le\el as long as possible,"

Tennis Team Weakened 
With Hunt out of Play 

Net Captain 


Chances for a successful tennis season 
suffered a severe jolt when Tod Hunt, 
captain and prospecti\e number one man 
of the varsity, was stricken with appen- 
dicitis and operated on Tuesday. The 
Rockwood Tenni.-; Tournament, in which 
Hunt was seeded first, will be delayed 
until the diminutive junior returns to 
action some time in September. 
Yale Here Today 

Hunt had taken the lead with Manager 
Jim Martinez in organizing a varsity 
team antl arranging a schedule of matches 
in the absence of Clarence Chafec, the 
regular tennis coach. The sejuad, slated 
to pla\- against Yale Frithu', will present a 
consitlerably weakenetl lineup, since Huiit 
will definitely be out of action and Dick 
Means, tentatively filling the number 
five slot, is out for football and probably 
will not |)lay. Under these circumstances, 
Dick Hole, George Schmid, Dick King, 
Gordie Michler, Stu Wilson and Les 
Havens in that ortler are slated to make up 
the si.x-man team. 

Accordi.'ig to L'ncle Ed HuMock, the 
Rockwood Tournament will be heltl up at 
least a month until Hunt recuperates. 
The competition had advanced to the 
semi-finals round as Dick Hole, seetled 
secontl, beat Frank Wozencraft easily.

In the most .severe accident since the 
recent pheiiomijial increase in bicycles on 
the campus, John L. Tyler '4.S and Fred- 
erick M. Myers '43 met at the corner of 
the Edward Clark Geology Laborator>- 
nearest the Old Faculty Club yes.erdas- 
at 12:30 p.m. in a head-on collision that 
sent both victims to the infirmary and 
demolished one of the machines. 

The accident occurred as Tyler, coming 
from Spring Street, rounded the blind 
turn and collidetl with Myers, whose 
vision was also obscured by the corner of 
the buililing. Thrown violently to the 
pavenuMit, both students suffered serious 
cuts ajid liruises abotit the face and head. 
Onlookers, who disentangletl them from 
the wreckage, sent for Dr. Kenneth R. 
McAlpin, who administered first aid and 
helped their removal to the Thompson 
Infirmary. Dr. McAlpin stated that the\- 
would be released from observation today. 

Onlookers reported that the force of 
the collision smashed the front wheel 
fork of Tyler's bicycle, and ripped the tire 
from one wheel of Myers' machine. 
Tyler's liics'cle is believetl to be jjeyond

their first run when Don Kelley beat out 
a slow roller and advanced to third on a 
sacrifici' antl an infield out. Me scored 
a moniciu later as Donovan lost control 
and hurled a wild pitch. 

In the fifth a trio of errors and four 
hits after two were out combined to give 
the visitors four unearned runs. They

Deke Freshmen Receive 
Fewest, Chi Psis Most 

In contrast to last year, wdien only 
seven houses made use of the o|)portunity 
to get scholastic information about in- 
coming freshmen from the Dean's Office, 
the information was made available to 
all htjuses through the Rushing Chairman. 
35% of the class of 1946 received no 
preliminary warnings, as compared with 
40% of the class of 1945, 40.9% of the class 
of 1944, and 36.1% of the class of 1943. 

Statistics based on a rating of 1 point 
for each D warning, antl 2 points for each 
E warning, show an average of 1.71 for 
this year's freshmen, while the class of

On Cole Field with Massachusetts Guard 

Scvoii Williams nicii had a taste of

Captain M<'ars has already announced 
that students wishing to gain e.xperienc.' 
in drilling and military tactics can train 
with the (Uiard Tuesday nights, and last 
Pncsday's delegation is expecteil to be 
only the van-guard of ihosi' capitalizing 
on the offer. 

Kifles were issued to regular guard 
members in the VVilliamstown Opera 1 fouse 
at 1:M) p.m., and two platoons marched 
out Southworth St. with the student squad 
as rear guard for manoeuvres. An ad- 
vance guard was dispatched at the tennis 
courts when a bird-like "enemy plane" 
swooped low sending the guards scurrying 
for cover, and the company moved on.

Kifles weri' stacked at Cole Field, and 
Lieutenant Hullock led the men in calis- 

thenics. While the seven neophytes were 
held in reserve learnijig the "School of the 
Soldier" and essential Commando tactics, 
the first platoon advanced on "snipers" 
in the Cole Field brush. Despite out- 
standing bravery on the part of Private 
Richard W. Colmaji, Jr., reinforcements 
were called uj)on, ajiil the second platoon 
was sent to the "front." 

After successfully completing their 
mission, the company retreated, reformed 
its ranks, and returned to the Opera 
House where the student stpiail was 
instructed in the .Manual of Arms by 
Sergeant l.ouis K. liass, local iiir-raid

was Lieutenant Bullock, who was caught

Work has not been so easy on the Han-

the students for "taking ahold well." He 
doubted, however, "whether they could 
stand the strain for a cou| le of whiiledays' 
work. For the afternoon arrangement," 
he concluded, "they work real hard, and 
the .system comes out just tine." 

The farmers are still a little le.iry of 
their new hands in some cases. "They're 
about as good as you'd want with the 
pitchforks or the haling rigs, hut I'm

Inasmuch as the Carfield Club is 
situated in a college-owned building, the 
new agreement will not affect its present 
electricity charge.^, but the fraternities 
will now receive electricity at the same 
kilowatt-hour rate paid by the college with 
additional charges levied to cover normal 
transformation and distribution lo.sses and 
cost of distribution under the new set-up. 

These items, Thorns pointed out, were 
also included in the old rate, and do not 
represent an abnormal increase. Accord- 
ing to past figures on fraternity electricity 
expense, CBM estimates that the houses 
can make savings up to $1200 provided 
strict economy in consumption is practised.

Outing Club Plans Cole 
Field Obstacle Course 

Will Approximate Army 
Model, Says Thompson 

" Thip Outing Club is considering the 
construction on Cole Field of an obstacle 
course patterned after those used by the 
Army," Leonard C. Thompson '43, vice- 
president of woe, announced yesterday. 
This action has been suggested to the 
Outing Club by the Gargoyle Society in 
order to further the training of Williams 
men for the national war effort. 

Although this is the first announcement 
of the idea, Thompson and A. Barr 
Snively of the athletic department have 
been considering it as a possibility. 
Princeton University has constructed a 
course modelled after the much-photo- 
graphed Army obstacle races. Ideas re- 
ceived from the plans of other courses will 
be utilized in building the individual 
obstacles, as will any new ideas which will 
prove useful in conditioning students. 

Thompson said that although no action 
has been taken as yet, he was definitely 
in favor of the construction of such a 
course. Outing Club members and all 
others who wanted to volunteer could carry 
on the work. 

Snively pointed out that Cole Field 
would, in all likelihood, prove to be an 
ideal situation for an obstacle course. 
The course would start near Cole Avenue 
at the far end of Cole Field and run to- 
wards the Green River. After crossing 
and re-crossing the river, it would finish 
in the woods beyond tlie hockey rink. 
Such a course would be a mile or a mile 
and a half in length.

With less than two weeks to go in the 
interfraternity softball, the Delta Phis 
have yet to lose their first contest. Group- 
ed close behind them are the Chi Psi and 
Zeta Psi nines, with records of Jiine wins 
and one defeat apiece. Together with 
the D. U. team, which has won five of 
its seven encounters to date, they form 
the only serious threats to a pennant for 
the leaders, although the Alpha Delts i 
and Phi Gams still cling precariously lo 
a .slim mathematical chance, with three 
defeats against them. 

The schedule during the final weeks 
provides plenty of thrills, for the three 
top teams have yet to meet. The D. 
Phis meet both the Chi Pais and Zetes 
next week, and the Chi Psis and Zetes 
clash in their last game of the season 
the following Tuesday. B>' beating the 
Chi Psis and Zetes, the Delta Upsilon 
team can have a shot at the title, if both 
clubs beat the Delta Phis. 

Gilt-edged pitching by Teddy Rlcharil- 
son brought the D. Phis both of their 
triumphs this week. Tuesday the\ knock- 
ed the Kaps out of the race with a blister- 
ing attack that netted sixteen runs, Ui the 
Kaps' 3. F'eaturing the offensive was a 
first-inning grand-slam home-run liy Paul 
Heppes thai took the heart out iif the 
opposition. Richardson also helped his 
own cause with a round-tripper. Wednes- 
day the undefeated leaders were efleelively 
muzzled liy D.U. flinger, Denver Williams, 
but scored three runs on no hits in the 
sixth inning when his support went to 
pieces. Richardson blanked the oppos- 

Trailini; 4-2 in the seventh, I lie Chi 
Psis rallied to score six runs and win 8-4. 
A prospective Phi Gam rall>' was halted 
abruptly by an Ed Pennell-Hank iVnnell- 
Ted Halin double play. The\ continueil 
their winning ways on Frida\' in crushing 
the Kaps, 15-3, netting five runs in each of 
the first two frames. The Zetes kept 
pace with them by triumphing over the 
Theta Delts, 4-2, Wednesday on two hits, 
and rallying in the seventh to .score three 
runs and going (m to score two more in 
the eighth, to down the Psi U's 9-7, 
Thursday. Tom Lear\' aided I )ick King 
in his ninth win by driving out his second 
homer of the year. 

The faculty clul) broke even in two 
riotous encounters this week, dropping 
their second decision to ilie Phi Gams, 
11-10, after rallying to knot the count at 
lO-all, and nosing out the Phi Delts, 
13-11, later in the week. 

Bitter intersquad rivalry on the fresh- 
man baseball team conlimied, with the 
A team, captained by I'hil Ca<ly, main- 
taining its domination of the B and C 
clubs. They lead the league with a record 
of four wins and one defeat, followed by 
C with two wins and three losses, and B 
with two wins and four h)sses. Six 
rained out contests, and two ties will be 
played olT this week.

Rollo Smith Hurls 
No-Hitter Against 
Williams Saturday 

Amherst Evens Summer 
Series, 2-0; Ephs Gain 
7-3 Decision over G. E. 

Showing a complete roversal of form 
>rom his 6-3 shellacking of two weeks ago, 
;<()llo Smith, Amherst's tall right-hander, 
hut out Williams, 2-0, without a hit 
■iaturday afternoon on Weston Field to 
he dismay of a large houseparty gather- 
ing. So far as is known, this is the first 
no-hit performance in the eighty-three 
\ears of Williams-Amherst baseball 

In gaining his third win over the Purple 
in as many seasons. Smith pitched master- 
ful ball, giving up but three walks, while 
striking out five. In gaining this coveted 
win, the Jeff pitcher was aided by a 
spectacular catch by Merry Stiles in the 
third inning when the center fielder raced 
to his left and snared John Wakeman's 
long drive that ordinarily would have 
gone for a triple. Other than this smash, 
Smith had the Ephmen eating out of his 

Donovan Pitches Well 

Hill Donovan pitched good ball, limit- 
ing the Sabrinas to seven hits and issuing 
a single base on balls. But a pair of hits 
in the fifth and an error in the eighth 
spelled defeat for the converted infieldcr. 

In the fifth Amherst picked up its first 
run on Walt McNiff's single inside third 
base, a sacrifice, an infield out, and Joe 
Mill's single to left. In the eighth the 
Jeffs scored their final tally. Smith got 
the second of his two hits, a long drive to 
left center field that Carl Gruber held to 
a single by a beautiful one-handed stop. 
Sliles forced Sniitli at second, and Chick 
Koebel in turn forced Stiles. Then 
Donovan put Koebel on third as he threw 
wild trying to pick him off first. Koebel 
scored when Wakenian let Captain Jack 
Lally's grounder go through his legs. 
Purple Scoring Bid 

In its half of the eighth the Purple made 
its best bid to score. Dick Emi^ry walked, 
and after Gruber struck out, Wakenian 
reached on Koebel's jnisplay. But here 
Smith bore down and forced Bill Ford to 
loft out to center and Donovan to ground 

The Purple got back in the winning 
ways Wednesday in a twilight encounter 
with the General Electric nine from Pitts- 
field when it trounced the invaders, 7-3,

Gordon String Quartet 
To Open Music Season 

Nin-Culmell Accompanist 
to Well-Known Group 

Confronted with the opportunity of 
presenting one of the three ranking string 
quartets in the country, the Thompson 
Concert Committee departed from its 
■ policy of never sponsoring a single per- 
formance to announce that the Gordon 
String Quartet will play in Chapin Hall 
Thursday evening. 

The unusual concert was made possible 
only because the ensemble has been tour- 
ing the Berkshires during the summer 
months and was available just before its 
performance in Pittslield. The quartet 
recently presented a recital at Middlebury 
College and was enthusiastically received 
by a capacity audience of 600 students. 

The program will be highlighted by the 
presentation of a quintet by Joaquin Nin- 
Culmell, assistant professor of music, who 
will act as accompanying artist. In 
addition, the musicians will play a quartet 
by Beethoven and one by Sibelius, a 
masterpiece seldom heard in this country. 

Mrs. Robert Allen, who was recently 
appointed publicity director for the 
Thompson Concert Series, announced that 
music lovers at Williamstown arc parti- 
cularly fortunate in hearing the Gordon 
String Quartet since it ranks with the 
Budapest and Stradivarius Quartets as 
thj best of such musical organizations in 
th; nation. Tickets will be sold through 
th^ regular committee representatives.

Miss Barbara Murphy,

in Three Leading Roles 

by A. Henry Hedden, Jr. '44 

Cap and Bells Inc. presents The Front 
Page, its major production of the summer 
season, next Friday and Saturday even- 
ings, August 21 and 22, at 8:30 p. m. on 
the main stage of the Adams Memorial 

Charles MacArthur and Ben Hecht 
have collaborated in writing The Front 
Page — the movie His Girl Friday was later 
based on it. Hailing from Nyack, N. Y. 
and having worked together on several 
occasions, both Hecht and MacArthur are 
well-known in the literary world as play- 
wright authors, and motion piclurescenario 

Enlivened Rehearsals 

With almost tlinr iveeks of rehearsals 
as a foundation anil the houseparty and 
hour test hurdles passed, the production is 
beginning to swin^ u^io shape. Between- 
acts song fests parlii ipated in by members 
of the cast and (entering on Frank C. 
Goodrich '45 and liis guitar has been the 
scheme for enlivening these rehearsals. 

The lead role of Hildy Johnson, ace 
newspaper reporter, goes to John E. Neil- 
son '44. Neilson has had previous 
A. M. T. stage experience through his 
appearances in Much Ado About Nothing 
and the Art of the Theatre'sGreen Pastures.

College for Women, is cast in the leading

In the face of wide-spread Indian riots 
throughout Hondiay last Tuesday Profs. 
Max Lerner and Frederick L. Schuman, 
emphasizing that "to fail on the question 
of India is to fail on one of the crucial 
fronts of the war," urged President 
Franklin D. Roosevelt to take the lead 
"in bringing about a meeting of minds 
which will resolve the danger" in a 431- 
word telegram to the White House. 
Indian CcHiperution Sought 

"We respcctfulh' suggest," read the 
telegram, "a jjroposal from the President 
of the United States in the name of the 
American people to all the other United 
Nations, for the innneiliate submission to 
arbitration of the terms on which India's 
liberation and India's full and voluntary 
participation in the allied war effort can be 

The proposal would, according to the 
telegram, provide for the release of 
members of the Indian National Congress 
now imprisoned and an agreement by the 
Indian leaders to "call off passive resis- 
tance and cooperate with the war effort 
during the waiting period, pending the 
arbitration of the dis]]ute." 
TiiiK' Limit 

A definite time limit for arbitration 
would be set under the Lerner-Schuman 
proposal, and as is the case in all disputes 
settled by such means, the agreement 
would involve prior obligation on both 

parties to abide b\- the decision of thi' 

Outlining a of arbitration 
which would include representatives 
selected by the governments of the United 
Kingdom, the United States, the .Stjviel 
Union, and the Kepublic of China, Pro- 
fessors Lerner and Schuman asserted th.u 
the problem has assumed tremendous 
proportions, and must be dealt with by 
cooperative means. 

Victory 'Mortally Eritlanjjered' 

"We are," ran the telegram, "dv'oply 
distressed by the tragic conflict which has 
broken out in India, by which th" iill iin.ite 
victory of the United Nations is mortally 
endangered. The American gov.Tninent 
and people have a stake in the Indian 
situation which they cannot lijjhtly 

Professors Lerner and Schuman de-

the Inditm parties to reach a decision "as

are to enjoy 'the right of all people to 
choose the form of government under 
which they will live.' " It will, they 
affirmed, "call in question tlu' cffectiwness

P. T. Regulations 
Now In Force 

(For ihe benefit ol undergraduates who 
are not yet acquainted with Physical Train- 
ing rules and regulations, the Dean's Otfire

Centipede Six-Seater Cycle Sees Service; 
Carries Half -Ton of Husky Williams Men 

by Bruce McClellan '45 
Six, not sex, was the uniquely out- 
standing feature of a Houseparty saving- 
for-the-war-elTort multipile place bicycle 
that served as transportation for a sextet 
celebrating last week's hay frolic. Tripling 
the bicycle built for two, the centipede 
product of American ingenuity carried 
over a thousand pounds of Williams men 
to the functions of the weekend at a con- 
siderable saving of gasoline and rubber. 

Bicycle Etiquette 

Houseparty guests first glimpsed the 
bike as it raced down Spring Street to the 
Amherst baseball game and went once 
around the track in the middle of the first 
inning. Each of the six who pumped the 
machine wore a white coat, dark glasses, 
and gloves in the best tradition of nine- 
teenth-century bicycle etiquette. 

The one unpleasant feature of the 
machine was revealed by Edward L. 
Emerson '43, when he said, "The thing is 
fine to get around on; but you can't take a 
bike dancing even though you can park 
with it. I wish I had a date. She lives 
in California." 

Owned by Henry N. Flynt, Jr. '44, the 
bike was built in 189S by a firm in Boston 

for the use of the King's County Wheelmen 
— a Brooklyn bicycle club — and handed 
down through a great uncle to its present 
owner. When built, the bike was con- 
sidered completely practical despite the 
fact that it weighed over 200 pcmnds and 
had no brakes. 

Secret Practices 

Even with the addition of a hand brake, 
it took the group two practices to feel 
reasonably safe operating the machine. 
Secret practices were held Thursday night 
on Weston Field and Saturday morning 
on the Green River road. Because the 
bike is geared for racing, the group found 
their greatest difficulty in climbing hills. 

The riders claim that each seat has a 
special function to be mastered. Thomas 
W. Leary, Jr. '43 revealed confidentially 
to a Record reporter, "I don't have to 
pedal. My only job is balancing. Even 
then I sometimes catch crabs." 
Brakaman Drags Feet 

Only the front handlebars are used to 
steer, and the sixth man must help to 
brake by jumping off and dragging his 
feet. The drive seat (should you evet 
have a chance to ride such a bike) is 
(See sn-SEATER page 3) 

4 New P.T. Sports 
Start September 

Classes Begin in Boxing, 
Basketball, Swimming, 
Wrestling, Says Bullock 

With the beginning of varsity fall 
sports in .September, I'. T. classes in 
basketball, boxing, swimming, and wrest- 
ling will be inaugurated, st.ited J. Edwin 
Bullock, assistant professor of physical 
education, yesterday. Since .dl the P. T. 
instructors will he coachiiit; .i sport at that 
time, these classes will all be finished by 
4:00 in the afternoon, instead of continuing 
imtil 6:00 .is they arc now. 

The various 1'. T. classes will be divided 
into four scpiads which will participate 
respectively in the four sjiorts, T+iese 
squads will last approximately si.v weeks 
apiece, with undergraduates being shifted 
from one squad to another as tliey become 
reasonably proficient in each activity. 
Jiii.lilsu IncludtuI 

Mr. Bullock said that the wrestling 
class, which he will instruct, will include 
not only collegiate wrestling, but also jiu 
jitsu. Likewise, swimming, under Coach 
Robert B. Mair, will probably include 
such activities as keeping afloat when 
fully uressed. Boxing will be taught by 
Anthony Plansky, while Richard W. Col- 
man will be in charge of the basketball 

Sometime in late fall or early winter 
P. T. in apparatus work, skiing, 
and squash will start. Messrs. Muir and 
Plansky will handle sipiash in the absence 
of Lieut. Clarence C. Chaffee who is in the 
Army Air Corps, while Messrs. Bullcck 
and Colman will instruct the gymnastics. 
As yet, a skiing coach has not been ap-

Ball Games Banished 
From Laboratory Field 

At the suggestion of a trustee, the col- 
lege will soon reseed the entire laboratory 
campus, install a concrete curbing from 
the Hopkins steps to the GargoN'le fence, 
and lay cement or gravel walks where the 
present footpaths have been worn. No 
baseball games will be permitted on the 
lab field in the future. 

The practice of playing softball games 
there in the past has caused considerable 
disturbance to students in the over- 
crowded Physics Lab, and has worn off the 
grass. The new curb is designed to pre- 
vent automobiles from turning on the 
lawn in front of Jesup Hall.

Is The p. T. Program Working? (Con't.) 

Tlii.s week the Dean's Office litt.s placed a man on iio-cnl.s for two 
wcek.s because he failed to respond to a V. T. .stinimons card for con- 
.seciitive cntliiif;, and lia.s Inriied over to the Coinmitlce on Di-sciplinc 
aiiotlier .stiulenl wlio .signed up for a day's credit in golf l)nt failed to 
])lay. The (Committee in turn placed thi.s man on i)robati()ii for the 
of the .semester. These positive steps to enforce the war P. T. iirogram 
offer clear evidence that the college is willing to stej) in if iindcrgradnate.s 
continue to disregard a primary Williams obligation. 

The Dean's Office has also released to TiiJO Kkcoui) a summary of 
all the laws governing P. T. attendance, which is jirinted on page one. 
("|uently ignorance of the law will no longer .serve as a valid, 
nor will undergraduates have a right to expect tiiat the unnecessary 
leniency of former days i.s to be continued. 

From P. T. Director Bullock, we received the following .statement 
yesterday: "We are aware of the fact that there is, as always, a certain 
small gronj) attempting to get by with the least possible effort and they 
perhajis spend much time and energy in dodging V. T. Kventually we 
catch up with them and the Dean does the rest." But we are convinced 
that the "certain group" is far frtmi ".small," and believe another week 
of .strict enforcemenl by the Dean's Office will conclusively prove it. 
And 11 four weeks, when we again report to the college comnuinity on the 
P. T. program, wo hope to declare thiit ijcnaltics are administered not 
"eventually," but immediately. 

Elections and the 'House Line' 

This week members of the three upper nominated their 
])residenlial and Honor System representatives — nominated them under 
I'ndergraduatc C'oiinei! rules much as they did last year and the year 

They Moiniiiatcd their candidates and few cpieslioncd those rules; 
few wondered whether something wasn't wrong. Something was wrong. 
The members of the three upper classes were not and are not a.ssured they 
will have the best possible representation. Combined with general 
student apatliy and liie evil of simultaneous presidential and Honor 
System nominations and election, the "house line," an almost inviolable 
tradition that meinhers of a social unit delegation will back one of their 
number, has jilaced house |)restige above individual merit in selecting 
class officers. 

The nomination of a candidate now de])ends on his ability to olitain 
only a few votes, and while a candidate may receive a num- 
ber of votes for |)resideiit and some more for Honor System representative, 
his total in either may be insufficient to secure his nomination. At the 
same time few voters look beyond the "house Hue." Few consider thai 
the three unsuccessfnl presidential candidates might be better fitted for 
the Honor System position or vice versa, and that in the past good men 
have been "shelved " Few voters, in effect, consider their choice .seri- 

This week there was ample evidence of the "house line." The iii- 
cogruity of simultaneous nomination and election again made itself felt. 
Although a member of the Honor System Committee is elected for the 
duration of his college career, almost every member of the present com- 
mittee received votes for renomination. 

The Undergraduate Council Flections Committee ha.s taken stejis 
whieh will partially remedy the second fault. .Vlthough nominations for 
the two positions will remain intact, the final election ballots for Honor 
System representative will be (hstril)ute(l Monday, before and .se])arate 
from those for class president because of the greater importance of the 
Honor System position and to provide a fair election for those men nom- 
inated for both positions. 

The problem of simultaneous nomination, the " line," and 
student apathy remain. The first must be provided for through direct 
Undergraduate (\)uiicil Icgi.slation now. The .second and third can be 
corrected through IJ, ('. ajipeal to the student body for more general 
recognition of the importance of elections, and through class meetings 
especially for the of nomination. So-called "dinner table voting," 
which leads directly to the "house line," and can be eliminated. 

Letter to the Editor 

To tlie liditors of I'HE liECOBD; 

Ik'cause your editorial of August 7 re- 
garding the P. T. program states tlic case 
from only one |)oint of view I slialj state 
it from anotlier side 

In ttic first place tlie physical education 
department has definite objectives which 
may be stated tiriefly as the development 
of organic xigor; neiiro-nuiscular co- 
ordination, balance and skills: iho develop- 
ment of interpiet.itive power an<l judge- 
ment; the development of emotional con- 
trol, the competitive spirit an<l the will to 
win; the development of cooperation, team 
play and leadership. 

Our problem is not one of muscles alone 
but it is to assist in ileveloping these 
qualities in nearly 800 stuilents who have 
varioHsteniperanients, attitudes, capacities, 
and degrees of physied fitness. 

We agree that ilaily P. T., especially 
at this time, would be more beneficial 
than three periods per week. Because a 

crowded academic schedule has priority 
rights (claims) on the studL-nts' time it is 
difficult to arrange a suitable P. T. 
schedule Many students rciiort in three 
dilTorent class hours because they do not 
have the same hour open for P. T. three 
times per week. When P. T. clas.sos ,ire 
scheduled between two academic classes 
it cuts the time for actual work to .W 
minutes in the gymnasium and 2,S minutes 
on the tennis courts because we musl 
allow time for dressing and showers. With 
all four classes taking P.T. wo now have 
i2 periods per week. Eight of these will 
have to be discontinued Septeniber 1st 
when the Fait intercollegiate s<iuads start 

At the beginning we gave the freshman 
class a physical fitness test .md di\ ided the 
class into four groups .according to their 
physical fitness indices. We hoped to 
have each section in a different period so 
wc might give them special instruction 
that some needed. This plan could not 
l)e worked Irecause tlicir academic classes 
had l>cen scheduled earlier and the differ- 
ent groups could not be kept scparatc.l. 

Contrast this situation to the Army, 
Na\-y, and Marine camps where men who 
have passed rigid physical examinations 
are gi\en six to eight hours of vigorous 
physieil activities daily. By comparison 
it takes us three weeks to accomplish the 
equivalent of one day's work in the train- 
ing camps. .Should the results be the 
same? ^'.)ur editorial suggests that they 

'then there are certain pressure groups 
who want something different because 
"it is good exercise". Farming for P.T. 
credit was s|)onsored by such a group and 
the idea was supported by the Record. 
Your issue of August 7 pictured an under- 
graduate supposedly milking a left- 
handed cow for P. T. credit. An article 
in the same issue states that farm work has 
l)een varied, " . ranging from digging 
topsoil from under a prospective hen house, 
through hay pitching and sheep lierding, 
to chopiiini; the weeds and grass around 
(he IS'W) llonsj, a local restaurant." ll 
states that one undergradu.ito benefitted 
greatly by the experience to the tune ,il 
"$2.00, blood blisters, and beers". 

We are in favor of helping the farmers 
but that is not P.T. Is farming more 
closely related to P.T. than to History, 
Economies. Chemistry or Biology? The 
"farmers" were not excused from these 
courses so the 1896 House might be made 
more attractive from the outside. Why 
not call this ",.. ..farcial preparation for 
the gruelling demands of the armed 
services" instead of picking on the student 
who hit only thirty balls while taking a 
lesson in beginners' golf? Thisstudeot was 
required to take two golf lessons in ad- 
dition to one period of calisthenics for the 

\ou assumed that all the undergrad- 
uates would eventually lie in the armed 
forces and that the sole purpose of the 
department was to prepare them for 
combat with the enemy. In a letter to 
the President of the American Association 
of Health and Physical Educ.ition, Lieu- 
tenant W. B. Bayless, U. S. Navy Divis- 
ion of .'\\iation Training wrote, ' The 
'will to win' spirit is considered the most 
important factor for a successful Na\'al 
a\'iator. Therefore, il will iiol he necessary 
for good avialon to be super-men from a 
physical standpoint as long as the>' have 
that competitive spirit which is developed 
in the field of sp.)rt". (The italics are 
mine.) We believe that golf can con- 
tribute something toward the develop- 
ment of this spirit. 

We realize that in this it is a case of 
winner take all and that there is no prize 
for second place. Our program of activ- 
ities is designed to develoj) the qualities 
stated at the beginning. Thes-.- (pialities 
are desirable in citizens and soldiers. 
We believe that any specialized activity 
that is purely military in purpose and scope 
should be left to the experts in ch,- train- 
ing canii>s. 

.^s for the departnu'it being under- 
manned, we do miss the services of Mr. 
Chaffee who was our most proficient in- 
structor in tennis and scpiash. Wc have 
made adjustments so these classes are in 
capable hands. In the inter-collegiate 
athletics division there is no one to take 
Mr. Chaffee's place as coach of the 
\arsity and freshman teams of tennis and 
S(|uash but these teams are not under the 
direction of this department. 

We are aware of the fact that there is, 
as .dways.a certain small group attempting 
to get by with the least po.ssilile effort and 
they perhaps spend much time and energy 
ill dodging P.T. Eventually we catch up 
with tnem and the Dean docs the rest. 

Although you may have noted that all 
the inferences of your editorial do not 
meet with our approval, we believe that it 
was necessary and hope that some good 
will come from the discussion you may 
have started.

evening in a mixed chorus of 200 in 
Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with the 
student orchestra of the Berkshire Music 

With Robert G. Barrow as director, the

vear by Mr. Iver Jones, and with Mr. 
Harrow they have collected the chorus and 
arranged for the concert. 

This concert is the lirst appearance of

to explain a bi.. "We're getting an 
tiverage of .SO student golfers a day now, 
and with practically no tourist play this 
summer, this student turnout has helped 
no end in enabling us to meet {■xpeiises and

.AKHi><taiit Pro Lea\iiijL!; the labor problem getting more 
critical every day, Dick expressed the 
beliel that students may have to pitch In 
and spend free time working on the om-se 
next summer. Assistant pro Harold 
Perry is to be drafted Monday, anil alter 
Labor Day only two men will be on hand. 
Perry has been connected with the club 
for LS years. Beginners' golf will bc' 
dropped from the P. T. program alter 
Labor Day so Dick can spend more time 
on the course. 

In spite of the labor problem the eoiiise

Frosh Hat Committee 

Purple Knights to Play 
at Gym Dance, Aug. 29 

Robert B. Kittredge '4.S, president of 
the I'ndergraduate Council, appointed at 
this week's niet'ling a committee to look 
into the matter of freshman hats. H. 
Maynard Oliver '43 is chairman assisted 
by David W. Brown and George D. 
Lawrence '43. The committee will in- 
vestigate the matter ami suggest a policy 
to be followed regardiiii; the length of time 
the hats are to be worn and the enforce- 
ment of the rule. 

The U. C. also strongly recommends 
that all students equip their bicycles with 
lights and cease from riding on sidewalks. 
The student governing body warns that 
local action will soon be taken unless the 
matter is settled at once. 

The U. C. has passed on a petition 
presented to them for the scheduling of a 
dance in the Lasell G>'mnasium August 
29. The petition was recently passed by 
the S.A.C. The Purple Knights will 
provide the music. 

Rev. A. Grant Noble, chairman of the 
Allied Relief Committee, announced to- 
day that $500 had been collected in the 
weekend sale of tags. Each of the five 
branches, including China, Great Britain, 
Greece, Holland, and Russian relief, will 
receive $100. "This response was much 
above our most optomistic hopes," de- 
clared Dr. Noble.

it stirs up reporters, criminals, politicians,

A professor at the l.oiulon School of

universities since his departure from 
Ciernuiny in 1933, Dr. Bonn is spending 
his vacation in Williamstown where he is 
making u«e of the Stetson Library in his 
work. Dr. Bonn first came here in 1924 
when he delivered a lecture on "The 
Crisis of European Democracy" at the 
Institute of Politics. He also spoke here 
two years later al a round table. .Since 
that lime he has heconie an Enjjlish

"Germany's financial set-up is neither 
socialism nor slate capitalism." Dr. 
Bonn declared. "The possession of prop-

allowed to make money, but not allowed 
to use it." 

Technical Directors 

The farmer and manufacturer are nolh-

"The government obtains its income by 
issuing treasury bills," he continued. 
"Since many people have good incomes 
ami alniosi all goods are rationed, there is 
a good deal of surplus cash in the country." 
The (lerman nmst put his extra money 
either in a hank or his own pocket. "In 
llie bank it is from time lo time recjuired 
lo be used to subscribe to government 
hjaiis. 'Those who hoard their money in 
any great amounts find it very hard to 
explain to the government," he saiil. 
Economic Difficulty 
"As long as the war goes well, Ger- 
many's economic systeiu will not back- 
fire," Dr. Bonn went on. "Economic 
difficulty would arise if the total output 
of goods is no longer physically large 
enough to keep the workers able to do 
their work efficienlly." If such a con- 
dition arises, he implied, the Germans 
will alreadv be losini; I he war on the battle- 

"Germany's financial status has been 
greatly bettered by I he exploitation of the 
conquered countries." he asserted, "for 
not only have the Nazis supported their 
armies on their subjugated territories, Ijut 
they have drained con<iuered manpower 
into German war industries." Now the 
Germans are having their greatest econ- 
omic troubles in securing enough workers 
for their war industries, he added. 

Dr.' Bonn claimed that there was a 
certain amount of black market, with the 
party members the gri'atest offenders, 
since they are not bound by the laws. 
He declared that they carry on a lot of 
bo()lle},'ging not only for ihemselves but 
for other people. 

"1 do not think thai il is possible for 
Germany to conquer the I'nited States," 
he concluded. "But if Germany is not 
defi'aled, any peace thai arises will not be 
a i)eace, but niereh" an annislice."

Intranuiral Softball enters its final week 
of scheduled competition with the Delta 
Phi nine still sporting an undefeated 
record. Results of the past week's play 
finds the Chi Pais in undisputed pos- 
session of the second slut, t he Zetes having 
dropped two encounters. The D. U.'s, 
by virtue of three wins, sneaked into third 
place knocking the Zetes from a tie for 
seconil to fourth. 'Three wins and no 
losses boosted the Phi Gams another 
slot while the Phi Delts jumped from 
ninth to sixth position. 

The D. U.'s and Chi Pais still have a 
bare lualhematical chance of capturing 
the title if they win the rest of their games 
while the D. Phis drop their last three 

Having downed the Chi Psis by a 6 to 
3 score on 'Tuesday, the Delta Phis are 
scheduled lor another thriller Friday when 
they encounter the Zetes. 

'The Zetes figured in two outstanding 
games of ihe week, losing both of iheni, 
to the Phi Gams 12 to 3, and to the D.l'.'s 
7 to 1 . 

In their crucial encounter with the 
D. Phis, the Chi Psis usually light field- 
ing fell down in the clutches lo make the 
scattered 1). Phi hits more than enough. 
Four cjf the first five Chipsies connected 
for solid blows and a three run burst was 
fashioned around Dave Thurston's double. 
D. Phi pitcher 'Ted Richardson then 
throttled the opposition for the rest of 
the game allowing no further hits. In 
their other game the Delta This crushed 
pitcher Tom Hoover and the A.D.'s in 
administering a 10 to 2 sct-baek featured 
by a homer and triple by the winner's 
Tom T'owler. 

'The Phi Gams surprised the Zetes 
12 lo 3, slugging their way to victory l)e- 
hind pitcher Tom Powers who, in turn, 
aided his cause with a resounding homer. 
The Phi Gams added two more to the 
win column b>* downing ihv Alpha Delts 
and Sigs by 3- 1 and 5-4 scores respectively. 

The pitching of Denver Williams plus 
good fielding and hitting set the D. U.'s 
back into the race with a week's r<'Cord of 
three wins and no defeats. Highlighting 
this record was yesterday's 7 to 1 win over 
the Zetes built around a fourth inning 
splurge when the winners piled up all of 
their runs. 

The faculty nine recovered from last 
week's debacle with the Phi Gams to 
defeat both the D. 1 .'s and A. D.'s in 
priming themselves lor next week's en- 
counter with the Delia Phis. Outstand- 
ing in the 7-4 win o\er the D. U.'s was 
Frankie Themis' stellar playing at short- 
stop while Tom Wood, converted to left 
field, provided the fielding spark for the 
8-2 win over the A.D.'s. A triple with 
the bases loaded off the bat of hard-hitting 
I'"rcd Stocking aided Charlie Keller to 
victory against the Alpha Delts. 

Freshman inters(|uad baseball finds 
team A still clinging to the number one 
jjosition despite two losses in this week's 
play. In second place is team B with 
an even five hundred average of four wins, 
four losses. Team C trails with three 
wins and four defeats. T'eature play of the 
week was a triple play pulled bj' team A. 
Bob Weintraub lined out to second base- 
man Phil Cady who in turn pegged the 
ball to Bill Arkin at third nipping George 
Wright olT the bag. Arkin relayed the 
ball to first baseman Bob Broman catch- 
ing Bob Durkee for the third out. 

Interclass golf starts next week with 
freshman-sophomore and junior-senior 
matches scheduled. Captains for the 
respective four-man teams are: seniors, 
Fred Barnes; juniors, Don Lindsay; 
sophomores, Charlie lleuer; and fresh- 
men. Bill 'Todd.

the political science department played 
one of the most important teaehi ig roles 
in the coieUry this June while on vacation 
from Williams. The Army, training its 
first class of military governors for future 
U. .S.-occupied foreign lands, chose Dr. 
Lerner to teach classes in the character of 
the C.erman and Italian mind and ideo- 

Dual Problem 

"Our problem is a dual one," Dr. Lerner 
|)ointed out. "Wo must understand the 
mentality of the (k'rinan, Italian, and 
Japanese people to be able to deal with 
th.?m, as well as learn the techniques of 
civil administration to keep our basic 
public services going in the face of hostile 
and bitter nations." 

The plan of this now Army measure, 
originated by several of the younger offi- 
cers in the war department, has been well- 
prepared. Dr. Lerner said. In the wake 

of advancing United States military iurm 
the commanding general in each llu'.uor

'Record' Presents Outline of Opportunities 
For War Service Available to College Men 

by LesTON L. 1 lAVBNS '4.S 
(This is the fint of two arlides designed 
10 give a comprehensive view of the openings 
for college men in the various brunches of 
the war effort. The second will deal loith 
the Navy, Marines, Comt Guard, Civil 
Service, and Federal Bureau of Investigation. 
— The liditors.) 

In all branches of the nation's war 
efTort, military, governmcnail, ijidustrial, 
agriculiural, and civilian, opportunides 
for patriotic service are open lo eolU'gv 
gru(iu;ites and undergraduates. What 
those openi.ngs are in the draft and on a 
deferred basis in the Army, .Army .Mr 
Corps, and Civilian Aeronautics .'\dniinis- 
ttation is oudined below. 
The Draft: 

With the institution of the Ofllcers 
CandidviC Schools, draftees are now gi\."i 
the opiJorLiiniiy to advance to ofliccrs' 
raving in ;"s short a vimc as six nionths, tlv,'

(Irafices, who receive 110 on the general 

put on active duty. St)mc of the special 
types of training which ([ualify draftees 
for the specific schools follow: general 
business management — yuarteriiiiister 
Corps; electricil engineering — Signal 
Corps; engineering Corps of Engineers; 
a.nd economics and banking — Finance 
Department. Applicants not prepareil in 
any of these fields may be best fitted for 
the Army's combat branches — the infan- 
try, armored force, ca\alry, chemical war- 
fare, or field artillery tmits. 

Through this deniocratically planned 
system college students have the best 
chance for advancement ; at present over 
ninty per cent of all oliicers have at least 
■ittended college. 
Oil a Deferred Basis:

56% of Students 
Receive Warnings 

Upper-Class Notices Are 
Heaviest in Six Years; 
1946 Worst Since 1929 

Ay Paul L/Etisls '44 

(The Record reporter has drawn the 
conclusions j^resented below aftiT a 
thorough survey of the sixteen social 
groups. — The Editors.) 

The Dean's Oliice this week issued 
warnings to 56.1', of Williams students, 
representing the larije -i percentage since 
the fall semester in r'36. This rise was 
felt in all four classi-, although the fresh- 
man mark of 69', rclipsesall marks since 
the fall of 1929. 

In discussing the widespread increase in 
warnings, Thomas J. Wood, director of 
admissions, said, "This increase is due in 
part to students taking courses in which 
they do not have the recpiisite aptitude, in 
order to compb with reserve reciuirements. 
There are, however, a sufticient number of 
warnings in normal courses to raise the 
percentage above average." 

Performances of Freshmen 

Attention was again focussed on the 
performances of the freshmen of the 
various social groups. There is a very 
real connection between the house attitude 
towards the scholastic performances of the 
freshmen, and their marks. This attitude 
manifests itself in two ways: 

1) It influences some houses in the 
order of their final lists during rushing. 
'This is not widespread, and every house on 
the campus, without exception will take 
one or two "scholastic risks" to get a good 
man. But, as Thomas S. Powers, '43, 
Phi Gamma Delta president said, "What 
good does it do you to got a good man for 
only three months?" Some of the houses 
that took into account the scholastic 
records of the class of 1946 were Phi 
Gamma Delta, Phi Sigma Kappa, and 
Sigma Phi. The effects of this are 
apparent in the chart of freshman warn- 
ings. Statistics on members of the class 
of 1946 were made available to all frater- 
nities through the rushing office in June. 

Perfunctory Motions 

2) Measures are taken to help freshmen 
in their studies after pledging. Some 
houses adopt an aggressive program, while 
others go through pcrfunctorj- motions. 
'The techniques of giving aid vary widely. 
Most houses have scholarship committees 
of one kind or another. One of the most 
popular methods of help is posting a list, 
or otherwise notifying the freshmen, of 
juniors and seniors, and the departments 
in which they are majoring. Other houses 
select qualified upperclassnien to tutor

I'or the first six innings Donovan was 
l<icke<l in a scoreless pitchers' duel with 
Cliarlir Harrington, Friar righthander. 
In tile seventh the ice was broken, with 
each team tallying a run, but it was not 
until the tenth that the Ephs could bunch 
enough of their nine hits to counter again. 
Donovan's low drop was so etfeclive in

debating team. 

An innovation this \'ear. tbe tournanient 
will be open to teams from the eiuire 
student bod\". 'There will be no dis- 
tinction made as to class or previous de- 
bating experience, any unilergraduate 
being (digible to team up with any other 
undergraduate. "We want as main- 
teams as possible from oulsitle the .Adel- 
phic Union." declared I'rank M. Wozen- 
craft '44, vice president of the I'nion and 
chairman of the All-ColliL'e tournanient. 
"We sluiil ciioose a topic of universal 
appeal, and we should like to see those men 
wdio have debating talent but who have 
not been able to join the I'liion come out 
for this affair."

Schuman Predicts Fall of India to Japanese; 
Only Roosevelt Action Can Prevent Disaster 

"If there is no action by the President 
of the United .States to settle the conflict 
in India within six weeks, India will be 
occupied by the enemy within the next 
six months," predicted Frederick L. 
Schuman, Woodrow Wilson Professor of 
Ciovernmcnt, Saturday in a Political 
Science ,S lecture. This warning followed 
by four days his a.nd Prof. Max Lerner's 
4.^1-word tctegram to President Roose- 
velt urging the Chief Executive to arbi- 
trate the Indian problem. 

Will Crush Resistaiire 

"Furthermor,^," declared Dr. Schuman, 
"If India falls to Japan, the resistance of 
China and Russia will be crushed, the 
enemy will be supreme in all of Europe, 
and another attempt at an in\asion of 
Britain will begin." 

In an interview yesterday, Mr. Schuman 
revealed that no acknowledgement has 
been made by the White House of his and 
Dr. .Lerner's telegram. 

"Yesterday," lectured Dr. Schuman, 
"the United Nations celebrated the first 
annivers<iry of the Atlantic Charter, yet 
despite the clause that we shall 'respect 
the right of people to choose their own 
government,' no mention was made of 
India by any of our leaders." 

Political Blunder 

Professor Schuman referred to Britain's 

recent Amcry decri'e, which dissolved the 
All Indian National Congress and jailed 
Mohandas K. C.andhi and other prominent 
Indians, as one of the greatest political 
blunders ever made by the British. 

One of two things will restilt from this 
blunder, he stated. Either the Congress 
will be crushed or there will lie a civil war 
in India, with the British oppressing the 
Indians in a worse manner than that 
Japanese or Nazis have yet had to employ. 
"If Congress is crushed, then the Japanese 
will complete the contjuest of India with 
the aid of the Indians within three months. 
If there is civil strife, then th.' Japanese 
will conquer India within six months, with 
the aid of sullen, disillusioned Indians." 
Aiiti-Itrilisli Keeling 

All of this will result in "an enormous 
increase in anti British feeling in China, 
Russia, and the Ihiitcd States," he con- 
tinued. "There will, moreover, be a 
growing conviction of colonials and of all 
the people in the world that there is little 
to choose between the United Nations and 
the Axis, that the British ruling class is as 
bad, if not worse, than the Nazis and the 

The only way that this situation can be 
avoided, he asserted, is by the intervention 
of President Roosevelt in the name of the

Party Set to Visit 
Campus Thursday 

Those Planning to Join 
Urged to Take Action; 
Williams Quota Unfilled 

.Acting President Richard A. Newhall 
announced Wednesday that the Mead- 
(|iiarters for the First Corps Area of the 
r. S. Army in Hoston plans to send an 
enlistment party of the Army Enlisted 
Reserve Corps to the Williams campus 
next 'Thursday, August 27. 'This visit 
will provide an opportunity for all those

signed to insure for the Army a future 
source of qualilied officer candidates.

the necessitN of war demands, the Secre- 
tar\' of War may call all members of the

An h. K. R. C. quota has been estab-

most of .\ew England. Williams has been 
assigned a share in this (|Uota — to be

Koussevitsky Praises 
Glee Club Performance 

Singing of Male Parts 
Unsurpassed, He Says 

liefore an audience of between (\vv and 
six thousand the Williams Glee Club sang 
last Saturtla>' evening at the Berkshire 
Festival in a mixed chorus Beethoven's 
Choral Symphony, the male parts of 
which, according to Conductor Sergei 
Koussevitsky, were sung as well as he had 
ever heard them. 

In a conversation with Robert G. Bar- 
row, director of the Glee Club, and Hugh 
Ross, who is coiiiH'Cted with the Festival, 
Mr. Koussevitzk\ gave the greatest praise 
to the perfoiniance and particularly 
lauded the male parts of I he chorus. 
OtTiitted from Program 

The chorus consisted in all of 180 
singers, ninety of them being female stu- 
dents from the Berkshire Music Center. 
Of the remaining number, fift\-nine were 
members of the Williams Cdee Club, 
though nil mention of this was made by the 
programs given out at the concert. 

The performance took ])lace after a 
brief rehearsal under Mr. Koussevitzky in 
the aftenionn, the music being played by 
the student orchestra of the Berkshire 
Music Center.

5 Nights Each Week 

The study-hall method is widely used. 
Some fraternities make attendance at the 
Stetson Library compulsory (or freshmen 
several nights a week, until they raise all 
their grades to C. The Chi Psis hold 
study ball live nights a week for those wit h 
more than two warnings. Alpha Delta 
Phi holds its study hall in the house, but 
other fraternities reject this method be- 
cause it does not give results. Zela Psi, 
initiating a study hall s\-stein. has ex- 
tended compulsory attendance to sopho- 
mores in difficulty. 

Most of the fraternities have some 
mechanism for contacting the faculty in 
efforts to help the first year men. Sigma 
Phi invites members of the faculty to 
spoak on alternate VVodnesclay nights, and 
the Phi C.amma Delta and Hcta Thet.t Pi 
send cards to professors aski'i^ for sug-

Onions, potatoes, tobacco, and dairy

I'he farmers are verj' ph-asid with the

The landowners have been willing to 

pay the prevailing scale of wage for their

with the weekly record of ten dollars now 
established. The plan has by no means 
hit its peak w'ith one orchardist calling

granted permission for the men signed b\ 
this farmer to take the necessary cuts. 
P.T. Credit for Farming 

The Amherst student-farmer project is 
a formal part of the college athletic cur- 
riculum. When the call came into the 
college authoiities, it was turned over to 
Albert K. Lumley, cross country coach, 
and the work immediately took the place 
of running, with credit given on physical 
training bases. At this writing, the farm 
project has a larger registration than base- 
ball, soccer, lacrosse, and summer football

of the valley was freely contemptuous of

U.C. Passes New Laws 
OnPost-Season Rushing 

Governing Body Warns 
P. T. Is Regular Class 

Monday the Undergraduate Cmincil 
took action on the post-season rusliiiig 
rules. The old law read that during iln- 
two-week neutral period, houses could 
not entertain any freshmen in whom thi\ 
were interested. 

The student governing body has now 
i added to the rules so that they coincide 
with those instituted during the periml 
belnre regular rushing. Members of ,i 
hou-r which have g;iven a bid to a certain 
freslmian must not have any contaei 
with him whatsoever during the neutral 
period. Freshmen will now be told what 
fraternities are interested in them al the 
beginning of the two-week interval, in- 
stead of just before the>' are pledged. 
I he penalty for breaking these rushing 
rules will he a six month period in which 
no freshman can be pledged to the offend- 
ing house. 

P. T. Now Enforced 

The I'ndergraduate Council has in- 
structed its members to warn their 
fraternities that P. T. is now considered a 
regular class and pen.ilties for over cutting 
and consecutive cutting will be enforced. 
The student gii\< rning body also asks 
that undergraduate ■ register their bicycles. 
Mert O'Dell, c.iiiipus night watchman, 
has provided a bn\ on the first floor of 
Jesup Hall in which these registrations 
can be placed. Students should put their 
name, the color, make, and number of the 
bicycle on the card.

Bomber Crash Kills 
Von Kuster Ex-'41 

Best Friend Also Badly 
Injured When U.S. Plane 
Strikes African Desert 

While piloting a I'. S. Army bomber 
over a desert region of Africa several weeks 
ago, I'aul von Ruster, Jr. ex-'41 crashed lo 
his death, according to a War Department 
telegram recently sent to his parents, Mr. 
and Mrs. Paul von Ruster of Minneapolis, 
Minn. Severely injured in the crash was 
von Ruster's boyhood friend, William 
Waters, wdio was acting as navigator on 
the bomber. 

Sudden Change in Orders 

No further details of the accident were 
related by the telegram. Von Ruster, 
however, had not been in Africa long, 
because two weeks liefore the arrival of the 
telegram, he had telephoned his parents 
from West Palm Heach, Fla. Detailed 
by the 10th detachment of the Army Air 
Force to the air ferry c(nnmand, he had 
been sent to Africa under a sudden change 
in orders. Until shortly before his de- 
parture for Africa, von Kuster had been 
scheduled to take a bnniber to China. 

After leaving Williams at the end of his 
.sophomore year, von Kuster went to the 
I'niversity of Minnesota, in order to 
specialize in aeronautics. He enlisted in 
the Army Air Force on July 16 of last 
year, and took his basic training at 
Bakerslield, Cal., wheie he was awarded a 
medal as the outstanding cadet in his 
class. He was later connnissionecl a 
lieutenant at Luke F\M. Ariz. 
'A Great Pilot' 

According to Waters' father, the news 
that von Kuster was lo pilot the bomber 
on which his son was m r\ing as navigator, 
was extremely pleasant to both father and 
son. Waters spoke of von Ruster as "a 
great pilot." 

\'on Ruster, who was t went\-three >ears 
(jlil at the time of his death, was a member 
of Theta Delta Chi at college. During his 
first year at Williams, he wrestled on the 
freshman team.

Indian leaders like it or not. 

(Jiioting Winston Churchill as having 
said: "Sooner or later you will ha\'e to 
crush Gandhi, the Indian Congress, and all 
they stand for," Dr. Schunuin pointed out 
that I lie British themselves have not been 
able and will not be able li settle their 
(liff. leiices with the Indians. 

If IVesidcnt Roosevelt intercedes. Dr. 
Scliiiinnn claimed, an agreement must be 
reached whereby the British release all of 
their iiolitical prisoners in India and the 
Indians in turn call olT their threats of 
c'i\il disobedience. As far back as 1940, 
he explained, the British have held some 
■lO.OOO political prisoners.

evening, August 31, they will meet John J. 
Egan and Douglas D. Royal, who reached 
the finals by out-pointing Newton P. 
Darling and Leonard B. Sclilosser, when 
they will debate for the fresh man cham- 
pionship on either the retail sales tax or 
wage ceiling problems. 

It is expected that the Adelphic Union 
itself will send six teams into the All- 
College tournament which will begin 
I'hursday, September 10. The revelation 
that there are several good teams in the 
freshman tournament promises strong 
competition from the class of 1046. Com 
pulsor\' chapel or divisional re(|uirements 
in a war curriculum will be two of the 
topics offered applicants who will be 
allowed to decide the tournanu'iit topic. 

The teams will be composed of two men 
each, and applications must he on Assis- 
tant Professor Robert F. Young's desk by 
Tuesday, September 1. Single applica- 
tions will be accepted, and the\ will be 
teamed at the applicant's convi'iiience by 
the Adelphic Union. 

The varsity debate squad will maintain 
the affirmative of the topic "Resolved: 
That Congress shall impose a retail sales 
tax" against Dartmouth in Griffin Hall 
Saturday, August 29. If any non-member 
of the Union is interested in this topic, he 
.should get in touch with Professor Young 
or Frederic S. Nathan '43, president of the 
Adelphic Union.

The Williamstown drive to collect 
victrola records, part of a nation-wide 
program to salvage valuable shellacs and 
provide entertainment for ser\'ice men, 
ended last Saturday night with a total of 
35,S0 records contributed. Although the 
sum is just 800 short of the prescribed 
quota, Frank Laniphicr, chairman of the 
drive, .iiiiiounced that he was pleased with 
the results, because for a town its size 
Williamstown had an unusually high 
quota lo fill. 

The national drive ainasseil 27 million 
records, he said. Williams College itself 
furnished at least 1500 of the discs col- 
lected locally. Merton O'Dell, campus 
policeiiian, received praise from Lainphier 
for his part in the drive. O'Dell gathered 
360 records from students |)ersonally and 
hamled them in, as well as taking care of 
records that were contributed in good

James Announces 
Approved Rushing 
Program for Fall 

No Prowling, Short Hours, 
and Dinner Dates Are 
Included in Procedure 

The F'all Rusliiiif; Program as released 
Ijy KushiiiK Chairman Ahin G. Jamrs '43 
\ tsterday will bcRin on October 3 and will 
incorporate several technical changes and 
,1 general condensation of the June pro- 
cedure. The portion of the sixty-odd 
Ireshnien to be alloted to each social 
organization has tentatively been set at 

Though Chairman James amiuunced 
that the present plan "seeks In make no 
alterations in the spirit of that program as 
approved by the Undergraduate Council," 
earlier this year, it does feature three 
direct changes in its new application. 

Foremost of these innovations is the 
elimination of the prowling period, which 
is designed to cut three days from the 
usual rushing time. T"he unusually small 
number of entrants is making this moxi' 

Four at Dinner 
Kor the same reason, the economy real- 
ized in dispensing with the dinner date in 
the first 1942 Rushing Period will be of no 
great importance, and houses are allowed 
to entertain the prospective pledges at the 
dinner table. This change is being met 
with great approval in the campus where 
tlu' dinner dale is considered the fairest 
and most potent rushing tactic. With no 
(■\lra help ami little extra footl needed to 
handle the calculated four rushees, the 
popular old custom is well in keeping with 
I he restrictions set by the times. 

For the benelit of all involved, the 
ever)ing's rushing been shortened in 
hours if not in actual dates, the first period 
still divided into sixteen sections and the 
second, into six. Beginning with the 
dinner date on Sunday, October 18, how- 
ever, the meal will extend over a full hour 
and the subseiiuent dates for no more than 
forty-five minutes. 

Shorter Periods 
In the second period, the dates will also 
be no more than forty-five minutes, hut 
the dinner date will not be used and the 
rushing will start at 7:00 p. m. This 
device gives the same number of dates as 
heretofore, and the same preferential and 
sub-preferential arrangement combined 
with a great shortening of time. Ihc

D. Brown Assumes 
3-Sport Captaincy 

To Lead Cross-Country; 
Plansky Calls Practice 
for Four-Meet Season 

Traditio'i fell by the wayside Tuesday 
evening when David W. Brown '4.S was 
elected captain of the 1942 cross-councry 
team, making him the only college athlete 
in recent Williams history to hold the 
captaincy of three varsity sports simul- 
taneously. This summer he piloted the 
lacrosse team from the goal and was named 
to lead the ski team at the close of the 
w inter season. 

Brown, a member of Theta Delta Chi, 
is also a Gargoyle, a member of the Under- 
graduate Council, president of Purple Key, 
chairman of undergraduate treasurers, and 
a member of the Williams Outing Club. 
He has for two seasons played goalie on 
the lacrosse outfit, and last winter annexed 
second place in the National Amateur 
Skiing Championshipfi.

Plansky, this season's crop of potential 
cross-country men reported for the first 
practice of the summer term Tuesday

Tweedy '42 Killed While 
Bombing Jap Warship 

Helps Sink Kaga Carrier 
In Battle of Midway 

Details concerning the death of Albert 
W. Tweedy ex-'42 during the Battle of 
Midway Island on June 4 and 5 have just 
reached the Alumni Office, according to 
Edwin H. Adriance '14, Alumni Secretary. 
In the July 10 issue of The RECORD, 
Tweedy had been reported missing after 
the battle, in accordance with information 
previously sent the Alumni Office by 
Richard M. Whidden '42, secretary of 
last year's graduating class. 

In a letter by one of Tweedy's .squadron 
mates to the former's mother, it is .stated 
that he had been killed on June 4 by 
Japanese anti-aircraft fire, after his 
bomber had dropped a cargo of heavy 
bombs upon one of the two Japanese 
carriers sunk during the battle. It is 
believed that as the bomber pulled away 
from its target, it was critically hit by the 
barrage of "ack-ack" fire sent up by the 

One Huitdred Percent 

The writer of the letter, an Amherst 
graduate of several years ago, went on to

the satisfaction of knowing that he had

tenant Warren W. LaPierre, the enlist- 
ment board expects to swear in over 125 
students befori' Mondav'. 

Few Rejected 

Captain Hutehins, in an interview with 
a RecOHD reporter, indicated that .-in

that onl\ a small percentage of applicants 
were being rejected for physical reasons. 

Speaking for himself and reflecting the 
Ariii\'s viewpoint towards students' en- 
listing in one of the various reserve pro- 
grams. Captain Hutehins stated, "Fbe 
slurlent should by all means choose one of 
them— the A. E. R. C, Navy \'-l, or 
Marine Corps Reserve — and join at the 
earliest opportunit\-." He went on to 
praise the Williams adniinislratioii in 
particular for its good work in preparing 
the ground for the arrival of {he oflicial

'44 Quota Oversubscribed 
The President's Olliee reveals that the 
junior class quota has been heavily iiver- 
subscribed. In the light of this situation 
a committee of six faculty members, 
headed by Acting President Kicbard .'\. 
Newhall, has selected enough men to till 
this (piota. 

To relieve the situation as much as 
possible, most of the juniors have been 
given earl\ appointments with the enlist-

50% of Applicants Are 
Tentatively Accepted 

Of fifty students applying yesterday in 
the Lasell C.ymnasiuni for enlistment in 
the U. S. Navnl reserve, both \-l and 
V-7 programs, the visiting Joint College 
Procurement Hoard accepted twenty-five 
applicants pending further information. 
Williams shares honors with .Amheriit in 
being the first colKge visiteu by the Board 
this summer. 

Providing the twenty-five men are 
finally accepted, they will be sworn in 
about two weeks from today. During the 
one-day stand sixty to sixty-five inquisitive 
prospective Apprentice Seamen and Mid- 
.shipmen stopped in at the gymnasium to 
iiiquire about the programs and take the 
physical exams. The steady influx of 
students helped to relieve the heavy 
pressure on the Army Reserve Corps en- 
listments, which, unlike the U. S. N. R., 
has a definite quota. 

"It was as good a turnout as we've had," 
said Ensign William Shelmerdine, Jr. 
U. S. N. R., one of the members of the 
Board. Throughout the day the officers 
handed out forms to students, adminis- 
tered physical tests, and conducted

Hell Week In Wartime 

TiiK Rf.cokd, October 10, 1941: "William.s fraternity men have al- 
ways felt that it i.s a jirivilege to be a fraternity man. They have al- 
ways felt that fre.shmen .sliould realize initiation night means much more 
than a long-awaited jaunt to the goat room. And because they have 
always felt this way, Williams fraternity men have long supported Hell 

"But it is impossible to believe that the ])rc'sent 'wet' acts of Hell 
Week — threats of branding, twenty-mile hikes on wintry nights, jjarad- 
ing with guns before the gym — have ever convinced a single freshman 
that he was about to share in a great privilege. It is impossible to believe 
that drinking twenty glasses of water at a single meal or being threatened 
with 'black marks' has ever i)repared a single freshman for the proper 
exercise of that privilege." 

And July 31, 1912: "The 'atrocities' of Hell Week can be completely 
abolished by swift Untlergraduatc Council action. Fraternity induction 
proceedings shoukl be restricted to formal initiation and the memorizing 
of pertinent house data. Economy of time and money, the necessity for 
emphasizing scholarship over ridiculous stunts, the obligation to face 
present events seriously and rationally all make the abolishment of the 
old Hell Week absolutely essential." 

But today, less than a week before the first wartime Hell Week begins, 
we find that the Undergraduate Council has been unwilling to pass an 
iron-bound rule that Hell Week activities be restricted to no more than 
three days. True, the U. C. has "recommended" that IlcU Week not 
start before Monday, and has ruled that it end Thursday. True, also, 
that the U. C, has "urged" that no fraternity force its pledges to go 
through any antics outside the house proper. But this is not the action 
which public opinion will demand of Williams fraternities; nor is it the 
action needed to guard the freshman class, heaviest warned since 1929, 
against unnecessary waste of study time and energy next week. 

This .summer, while the government dogmatically asserts that every 
college man has a strict obligation to tackle his work to the best of his 
ability, some Williams fraternities are considering the old four or five day 
Hell Week. This will result in an unnecessary waste of study or recrea- 
tion time for all undergraduates concerned, will give the community the 
reasonable impression that we are still overly engrossed in our own 
frivolous good times, and will ]}lace the heavily warned class of 1946 under 
trivial, but nerve-wracking and time-expending, obligations. 

This is our belief: Hell Week should be restricted to the learning of 
fraternity history and ideals, and to the formal processes of initiation. 
Everything else, whether "wet" act or other device to produce fear or 
humiliation, should be abolished. If freshmen cannot obtain delegation 
solidarity without the old Hell Week, if they cannot ai)preciate the real 
privilege of belonging to a Williams fraternity without being harassed 
by adult men, if ujjperclassmen are unwilling to give up the "idiocies" of 
Hell Week because lliey must have revenge for their own freshman year's 
"taking down," llien Williams fraternities are not founded upon firm rock. 

Letter to the Editor 

The Adams Memorial Theatre 

An Evaluation — 1941-1942 

The enthusiastic reception accorded Cap & Bells' production of The 
Front Page last Friday and Saturday must have been gratifying to di- 
rectors Max Flowers and Oren Parker, and to all those who helped make 
the play successful. But above all, we hope the enthusiasm of the audi- 
ences on those two nights signifies the beginning of a dramatic rejuvena- 
tion at Williams. 

A year and a half ago, when the .ji.lOO.OOO Adams Memorial Theatre 
was first o]K'neil to the ])ublic, all of us hoped that the long-suffering 
Williams dramatic groujis would at last be given a new deal — an o|)por- 
tunity to develop their talents in a theatre that one prominent drama 
critic has called the "finest exiicriniental plant in America." 

But these expectations were too sanguine. The necessary supervision 
of the use of the theatre facilities turned into a system of red-tapism which 
discouraged many groups from production efforts they otherwise would 
have made. Misunderstandings between undergraduates and faculty 
over the use of the theatre left the public confused and puzzled. Some 
flay the new Theater Production Council as "the keystone of the present 
hierarchy of red tape,"wliile others believe "better cooperation between 
the AMT and outside producing groups will now be possible." Of only 
one thing can we be certain: that not until recently has the AMT started 
on the long path towards becoming the living center of campus creative 
effort and entertainment. 

We fully realize that in the establishment of the new theatre many 
problems arose which faculty and undergraduates had never confronted 
before. We refrained from editorial comment, first because we found it 
difficult to get a clear picture of AMT difficulties, and second because we 
lacked constructive .suggestions. Sometimes we felt the plays produced 
were of a complicated character, and afforded little training opportunity 
for inexperienced candidates. Sometimes we felt too much emphasis 
was laid on technical training in production and on the manufacturing 
of scenery. Sometimes we felt publicity was extremely poor. Sometimes 
we thought the trouble was in the directing, sometimes in the acting. 

We don't pretend to know what lay back of our past dissatisfaction 
with AMT offerings, but we do know that The Front Page, the recent 
successful one-act plays, the coming performance of Trial by Jury, which 
AMT is staging with cooperation from the Glee Club, and the future 
offering of Fall of the City give hope that the AMT will now realize its 
great potentialities. 

To the tiditors of 'I'HB RECORD; 

As 1 have observed ttie effects on campus 
opinion of certain criticisms of ttie war 
efforts of the United Nations, it has seemed 
to nie lliat tlie>- have failed to accomplish 
their intended purpose. That purpose, 
beyond a doubt, was to malce people 
realize the gravity of the situation, and so 
to spur them to redouble their efforts. To 
a considerable extent, however, it has 
seemed to me that much current criticism 
has served chiefly to arouse distrust of our 
own government and its allies, and to 
paint such a picture of the futility and 
inadequacN' of the war efforts of the United 
Nations as to produce hopelessness and 

A case in point is the current criticism of 
the British handling of the Indian crisis. 
Adniitling that there is ample ground for 
criticism, what should be the purpose of it? 
Surely not to create the impression that 
the British government is solely to blame 
for the present impasse, or that ininietliate 
grant of independence to India would at 
once solve all problems and involve no 
risks. Yet, unless I am much mistaken, 
such are the ideas that many Americans 
now hold. The result of criticism which 
leaves such impressions is to arouse hatred 
and distrust of the English willioul in the 
slighlest imy contributing to a solution of 
the problem. It is to play into the hands 
of isolationists like Senator Reynolds, who 
care nothing for India, but who see a 
magnilicent opportunity to advance their 
campaign of isolationism under cover of a 
pretended zeal for American principles of 

Just so the idealists of 1919-20, who 
criticized President Wilson for making 
certain concessions at Versailles, played 
into the hands of isolationists and partisan 
politicians and contributed nuich to the 
defeat of the treaty. The ill effects of 
their criticisms did not, unfortunately, end 
there, for just because they were made by 
sincere idealists many Americans are still 
persuaded that nothing good can ever be 
expected from Europeans, and that they 
can never be persuaded to co-operate sin- 
cerely in any kind of effort for the main- 
tenance of peace. The results in 1919-20 
were the failure of the United States to 
enter the League of Nations and, what was 
worse, an enduring legacj- of prejudice and 
distrust of Europeans which remains to 
this day as one of the chief obstacles to 
American participation in an\- kind of an 
international organization for the preser- 
vation of peace. 

Criticism to be helpful should be timely. 
The kind of criticism which is invaluable 
at one time may be positively harmful at 
another. Numerous instances could be 
cited where impatient idealists have done 
almost irreparable harm to the cause which 
they wished to advance. The Abolition- 
ists may be cited as a pertinent example. 
After doing invaluable work in arousing 
American opinion io tlie evils of slavery 
they became impatient and embittered 
because they could not secure speedy 
political action, denounced the government 
and the politicians, and stigmatized the 
Constitution as a covenant with death and 
an agreement with hell. When therefore 
the South rebelled, they would do nothing 
to help preserve the Union. If they did 
anything during the dark days of 1861-65 
except to indulge in savage criticism, his- 
tory docs not record the fact. It was not 
the Abolitionists but Lincoln, the patient 
and magnanimous statesman, who said 
that he would save the Union with or 
without slavery, who both saved the Union 
and destroyed slavery. 

The moral of this is not that criticism 
should be withheld, much less suppressed, 
but that at a time like this, when every- 
thing conduces to discouragement, and 
when it is easy to fall into the apathy of 
despair, those who are in a position to 
influence public opinion should consider it 
an obligation to avoid arousing feelings of 
hatred or prejudice against those who are 
fighting with us, whether they be Russians 
or English, that they should consider it an 
obligation so to criticize the war effort of 
our own government as not to leave the 
impression that our cause is already lost.

Football wasn't football for fifty-

went through their first full-squad 
practices. Fundamentals and calis- 
thentics were stressed as Fielding 
Simmons was heard to mutter some- 
thing about footltiU training being 
five times hiirder iliaii any the Navy 
recjuired. Conlaei work to satisfy 
the he-men begins this week. To

108 Main St. North Adams 

Students Top Navy 
In Physical Tests 

Bullock Claims They are 
'Not Valid or Reliable 
Measures of Fitness' 

The average Williams undergraduate 
can do 23.7 push-ups, 9.3 pull-ups, 43.9 
body levers, and can broad jump 89.9 
inches from a standing position, accord- 
ing to the results of the Navy tests given 
last week in the gym by the physical 
education department. In each event the 
students bettered the Navy's mean of 16 
push-ups, 8 pull-ups, 15 body levers, and 
78 inches in the broad jum|). 

Claiming that these tests "are not a 
valid judge of a man's physical condition," 
J. Edwin Hullock, assistant professor of 
physical education, yesterday stated that 
they are used by the Navy to determine 
the physical strength and stamina of their 

Tests Not 'Reliable' 
Furthermore, he asserted, they are not 
"reliable" because of the varying degrees 
of strictness with which they may be con- 
ducted. This he illustr.ited by comparing 
Williams with Amherst. In the two 
"exact" tests, the stan<ling broad jump 
and the pull-ups, the two colleges averaged 
nearly identical scores. Hut in the other 
two exercises, which may be performed 
with less exertion by using incorrect form, 
Williams outclassed Amherst by four 
push-ups and twenty-six body levers. 
This large discrepancy was obviously 
not all caused by the eight weeks of calis- 
thenics that Williams had before the tests, 
he intimated. 

Most outstanding performance was 
made by David W. Brown '43, three 
sports captain, when hv chinned himself 
twenty-six times, six more than his closest 
rival. Other event Icafkrs were Robert 
n. Gurney with fifty-two push-ups, 
Wilder Gutterson, Jr. who leaped 109 
inches in the broad jump, and J. Hunter 
White '45 with 185 body levers. 

Freshmen Weakest 

The Class of 1944 attained the highest 
averages in both the pull-ups and push 
ups, while 1943 led in the broad jump and 
1945 outclassed the college in body levers. 
The freshman class, weakened because one 
of its members passed out during the test, 
placed last in each event. 

Other class winners in the body levers 
were Thomas H. Powers, Jr. '43, 107; 
William H. Todd '46, 150; and Henri C. A. 
Van Stolk '44, 165. David H. Uradley, 
Edward B. Mulcahy '44, and Bertram A. 
Tunnel I '43 led their classes in push-ups 
with lilt)', while Patrick R. Whiteley '46 
paced the freshmen with forty-seven. 

Erik lirown, J. Peter McNerney '45, and 
Winston V. Morrow '46 headed their 
respective classes with twenty- pull-ups. 
There was a triple tie of eighteen pull-ups 
between Sam Hunter, Peter J. Swayze, 
and \'an Stolk for the leadership of the 
Class of 1944. Van Stolk was the only 
student who led his class in more than one 

In the broad jump, James E. Draper 
'4(), Sam W. Maples, and C.eorge F.

inches, while Baseball Captain William C.

Meets Yale, Greenwich 

Loses, 9-0, to Elis And, 
9-1, to Country Club 

Mljms Army-claimed Coach Clarence C. 
Chaffee, the summer varsity tennis team 
travelled last weekend to New Haven and 
Greenwich ojily to bow before powerful 
Vale and (;reenwich Country Club teams 
9-0, and 9-1. Captain Tod Hunt was out 
of play dtie to an operation. 

Playing Saturday Cleorge Schmid chalk- 
ed up the only Williams victory of the 
weekend when he came from behind to 
take Southbert of the Greenwich Countrv' 
Club 1-6, 6-2, 6-2. In the number one 
slot at ^'ale Schmid drew Irving Dorfman, 
Junior Davis Cup player, and was trounc- 
ed 6-2, 6-0. 

Dick Hole lost his chance to down 
nationally-placed Cliff Sutter at Green- 
wich when his point-getting serve cracked 
at set-point in the third set, and Sutter 
took the next two games for the m.itch 
5-7, 6-0, 7-5. Making every game close. 
Hole went down fighting the day before at 
the hand,s of Yale's Blair Hawley 6-3, 6-4. 

The number one doubles team of Hole 
and Schmid extended their Yale oppon- 
ents, Dorfman and Hawley, by taking 
the first set that the Eli pair has lost this 
season. The match was nip and tuck 
until the very end when the New Haven 
racqtietmen clinched it at 6-8, 75-, 6-4. 

Golfers Top NACC 
For First Victory 

Barnes, Heuer Shoot 69 
Bestball, Win Three in 
8^-3^ Rout at Taconic 

At full strength for the first time this 
season, Dick Baxter's college golf team hit 
its stride and avenged an earlier defeat by 
North ,\danis Country Club with an 8J- 
H triumph in last Sunday's return match 
on the Taconic Club Course. It was the 
team's first victory in its two starts. 

The visiting linksmen came out on top 
in only one foursome as good teamwork 
by Fred Barnes, Williams captain, and 
Charlie Heuer in the first match, and Bob 
McKee and Chuck ^'eiser in the fourth, 
produced 3-0 sweeps for the college. 

Barnes and Heuer hung upafour-under- 
par 69 bestball in topping Bill Lindsay and 
Dave McClelland, winner and runnenip 
respectively in the recent North Adams 
tourney, 5 and 4. The pair scored seven 
birds on the round and took all three 
points by derisive margins. 

McKee ami Veiser won by 3 and 2 while 
the other Williams points went to Munro 
Steel and Hob Wright. Playing in the 
third foursome, the Steel-Wright duo 
rallied after halving the first nine holes to 
take a 2 and 1 victory. In the second 
match Pete Davis and Chub Moore 
bowed to North Adams' Pierpan-Flynn 
duo, 6 and 4. 

Rev. Eugene C. 
To Preach 



"What Are We Reallj- I'ighting 
For?" will be the subject which the 
Rev. Dr. Eugene C. Blake, pastor of 
the Pasadena Presbyterian Church 
in Pasadena, Calif., will discuss next 
Sunday night in the final sermon on 
the general topic, "Christian Faith 
in a Democracy." 

Dr. Blake was formerly pastor of 
the First Presbyterian Church in 
Albany, N. Y., and lectured on 
Religion at Williams during the aca- 
demic years 1937-38 and 1938-39. 

College to Debate 
Compulsory Chapel 

Tourney Begins Sept. 11; 
Varsity vs. Dartmouth 
Tomorrow Afternoon 

The highly controversial issue of com- 
pulsory chajiel at Williams has been 
chosen by the Adelphic Union as the topic 
for its All-College tournament which will 
start Friday, September 11. Deeming 
this a subject close to every student, and 
therefore capable of attracting a large 
number of debaters, Frank M. Wozen- 
craft '44, chairman of the tournament, 
announced this week that every under- 
graduate, "regiirdless of class or i)revious 
experience," is invited to enter the debates. 

Thoiuas S. Walsh and Frank M. Wozen- 
craft '44 will uphold the affirmative of the 
topic "Resolved: That a retail sales tux 
shall be imposed by the federal govern- 
ment for the duration" against a negati\'e 
team from Dartmouth Saturday afternoon 
at 3 o'clock in Griffin Hall. .\ problem 
that has been of concern toeconomistssince 
the outbreak of war, the sales tax issue 
should attract many undergraduates and 
faculty members. Thi Dartmouth team, 
composed of Robert McQtieen and Wil- 
liam Remsen '42, journeys to Williams in 
spite of the pressure of examinations. 

Appliciuits for the All-College tourna- 
ment must sign the forms in Griffin or 
Hopkins by Tuesday, September 1. .Six 
Adelphic Union teams are already regis- 
tered, and it is expected that eight or ten 
non-Union teams will enter the opening

seamen, or be given the chance to apply 
for \'-5, Ihey will have the same chance 
f<ir atlvancement as any one else in their 
position, though it is likely that they will 
qualify for special training more quickly 
than less educated volunteers. In regard 
to this, a Naval Selection Board has been 
instituted which recommends enlisted 
men for conunissions. 

All stiulents on application are divided 
into general and special groupings; the 
V-1 and V-7 are the general groups, and 
the V-IS and V-7S the special groups. The 
physical requirements for the special 
groupings are lower, and some major in 
engineering, mathematics, physics, chem- 
istry, meteorology, or business adminis- 
tration is necessary. Upon graduation 
those in the special groui)s will enter some 
specialized service of the Navy. 

Class V-4, intelligence, has been .set up 
for those (lualilied college graduates who 
have the necessary linguistic and mathe- 
matical requirements.

second wrck of posl-scasdii play aiul with

fiiuls itself in ahsolute possession of the 
campus crown — no other team having 
the barest mathematical chance of finish- 
inK with even a tie for the number one

had the only team in a position to turn 
the trick and, by the next afternoon, 
after IdsinK a len inninj; heart-breaker to 
the Chi Psis, even they were out of the 

The Chi Psis held a particularly im- 
portant role in the past week's play in 
entrenching themselves in the seccmd spot 
and blasting the D. U.'a hopes of tying 
for the league lead. The crucial D. U. 
game was a well-pitched and lighlly- 
played one until the fatal tenth when a 
third base error gave Dick Lambert the 
nod over the D. L'.'s Denver Williams. 
Hank and Ed Pennell teamed to provide 
the hitting power for the Alpha Delt 
Kame, the former slanmiing a three-run 
homer and the latter providing the margin 
for victory with his timely single. Lam- 
bert again pitched the Chipsies to victory; 
this time it was eight imiings — the score 
7 to 4. 

The Phi Ganas boosted themselves into 
the third position with two wins. They 
now have a chance, by garnering a victory 
in their last game, to end the season in a 
tie for second with the Chi Psi nine. 
ruesda\- the Phi Gams trounced the Phi 
Sigs 18 to 12 in a terrific slugging duel. 
With the score knotted at nine apiece in 
the seventh, the Fijis ran up nine more 
runs in one inning to clinch the game. 
In their other contest the Phi Gams added 
insult to injury in setting the D. U.s 
down to the tun<' of 12 to 4. With Herb 
Spring pitching and the score tied at .1 
all. Phi Wilson broke the tie and sparked 
his team to victory. Dan Case completed 
the debacle with a grand slam homer. 

The Sigma Phi team was the third 
outfit to register two victories in the past 
week's play. Trailing 3 to in the seventh 
and with two out, the Sig's Bcjb Olcott 
homered with two men on to tie the count. 
In rapid succession Hob Nel.son singled and 

Dick Hunsdotfer hit another homer to 
snatch the victory from the Theta Delta. 
With George Suniers hurling, the Sigs 
s(|ueaked by the Saints and chalked up a 
close 7 to 6 win in their other game. 

The faculty nine, placing in the newly 
ac(|uired Weston Field Howl, tlropped a 
close one to the Chi Psis on Monday, 
3 to 2. On Wetlnesdax', however, the 
profs were able to regain stride and bested 
the Betes 4 to i behind the steady pitch- 
ing of Charlie Keller. Although the game 
was a free-hitting one, both the Betes' 
Ziggie Steel and pitcher Keller were 
parsimonious in giving hits when the chips 
were down. 

The Garfield Club captured the intra- 
mural tennis crown by shutting out the 
Psi U.s 2 to in the finals. Bob \''iner 
and Al Dulcan teamed in giving the Club 
the nod over the Psi l'.'s .Steve Kent and 
Charlie Rowley.

Caldwell's eleven will work ofTensively 
from the familiar single wing-back and 
inibalanced line, but don't be surprised if 
some baffling new plays come out of the 
old combiiiation.

With the accent falling heavily on 
blocking, timing, and offensive play (he 
Eijhnien have so far had little defensive 
practice. It is a safe bet that Charlie will 
use his changing system of defense. 

In two weeks' practice the team has 
concentrated primarily on ground plays. 
They have learned a series of s|)inner plays 
and started learning another series of 
ground plays. Aerial offense has so far 
bien kept under cover as the eleven has 
learned only three pass plays. 

The first backfield of Caldttoll's hy|)o- 
llietical team wocdd include C.unner

"Although their whole governmental 
technifiue today is not democratic, it will 
be up to the United Nations to furnish 
the basis for a new world community," 
declared the Rev. Dr. Rcinhold Niebuhr, 
professor of Christian ethics and philo- 
s"phy at the I'uion Theological seminary, 
ill his address on "Reason and Force in 
International Relations" in Jcsup Hall, 

Speaking before a large audience in the 
lirst program presented by the Williams 
Lecture Committee this season, Dr. 
Niebuhr emphasized the relationship 
between reason, and power in the estab- 
lishment of a balance of power. Des- 
cribing reason as "the basis of justice" 
and power as "the organizing principle," 
he pointed out that both were indispens- 
able to international peace but empha- 
sized that world cooperation must go 
deeper than the principle of the balance 
of power. The balance of power tenet, Dr. 
Niebuhr stressed, is one of anarchy and 
must necessarily resolve itself into poli- 
tical war. 

Appeals {or Brotherhood 
Following an introduction by the Rev. 
A. Grant Noble, college chaplain, Dr. 
Niebuhr pointed out the unity of body, 
spirit, and mind, and the influence they 
liave on "the will to power" that has 
distinguished man and international rela- 
tions. The human mind represents "des- 
tructive and creative instincts curiously 
compounded." He went on to explain 
how the "element of force and the pinnacle 
<if reason" combined in man result in the 
power politics, exploitation and injustice 
"f the day. Dr. Niebuhr, noted as an 
author and lecturer as well as a theologian, 
concluded with a ringing appeal for a new 
brotherhood of nations based upon the 
■■cason of justice and the force and domi- 
nance of the United Nations. 

An obstacle course 120 yards long has 
been pl.inrnd b> J. f.dwlii Dullock, 
assistant professor of physical education, 
and will be built ininu'dialely for trainint; 
physical education classes. To be placed 
behind the Weston Field concrete baseball 
bleachers and used in cniijunclion with the 
track, the five-lane coiirsr will incorporate- 
eight of the best featuns from Army and 
Navy hardening riiii' 

To Be Used Alternately 
When the course i~ completed, physical 
education classes will alternate with 
calisthenlics, crossinuntry, and soccer to 
go through the run every fourth class 
period. Wrestling, swimming, boxing, 
and basketball will imt begin for Phy.sical 
Education groups until the weather is 
colder and the da\ s are shorter. 

The procedure in using the course was 
outlined by Mr. Bullock: "We'll .send 
them around the track a couple of times 
and then through the run. Because the 
obstacles are so close together, we'll be 
able to supervise the course closely and 
keep it as safe as possible."

Fraternities Initiate 
129 Members of '46; 
Defy U. C. Requests 

In widespread defiance of an Under- 
graduate Council recommendation that 
Hell Week activities be confined within the 
respective fraternity houses, more than 
half of Williams' fifteen secret organiza- 
tions continued their prc-Pearl Harbor 
Hell Week policies, conducting their 
initiations, in part at least, outside the 
houses. One hundred and twenty-nine 
men, 65.8% of the class of 1946, were in- 
ducted into the fraternities in this, Wil- 
liams' first summer initiation. 

Another U. C. recommendation, that 
Hell Week activities not begin until 
Monday, was similarly disregarded by at 
least six social groups, and pajaniad 
freshmen were the rule, rather than the 
exception, on campus Sunday night. In 
recommending these wartime changes in 
the traditional Hell Week procedure, the 
student governing body left the matter to 
the discretion of the individual houses, 
but less than a handful complied. 

Combined in the past with Midwinter 
Homecoming on the third weekend in 
February, this year's initiation draws less 
alumni to Williamstown than ever before.

Amherst 'Student' Calls 
Hen-Fruit Cackleberries 

That good old reliable dean of 
sniall-college newspapers, the 
Amherst Student, came through with 
thi' goods last week. In an adver- 
tisement for what they would un- 
doubtedly term "hen-fruit," the 
Student printed the following gem: 
"EGGS — Think of the hands across 
the seas that would death' love to 
reach for eggs as handy as they are 
to most of us in the good old l'. S. A. 
And some folk have to be reminded 
how delicious a fresh cackleberry 
can be."

Charles R.Keller Heads 
New War Committee 

U. C. Chooses 5 Students 
to Work with Faculty 

Last week the Committee on the State 
of the College in a World tit War was 
formed under the chairmanship of Charles 
R. Keller, associate professor of history. 
The purpose of the committee is to lind out 
whether Williams is doing its part with the 
greatest possible effectiveness in contri- 
buting towards winning the war. 

S Faculty on Committee 

The committee appointed by Acting- 
President Richard A. Newhall includes 
Dean Halfdan Gregersen; Alton H. 
Gustafson, assticiale jirofessor of biology; 
Dr. Keller; Donald E. Richmond, Fred- 
erick Latimer Wells Professor of Mathe- 
matics; and Thomas J. Wood, director of 
admissions, who will work with the follow- 
ing students appointed by the Under- 
graduate Council; John C. Fuller, Alan 
G. James, Robert B. Kittredge, C. Gorham 
Phillips, and Thomas B. Powers, Jr. '4.?. 

According to Mr. Keller, the committee 
has been formed to take slock of the con- 
ditions existing at Williams today and to 
reconnnend possible solutions to problems 
which confront the college and the under- 
graduate body. The committee has al- 
ready conferred with the phj'sical educa- 
tion department on more rigid enforce- 
ment of the at tendance of P. T. classes and 
has approved the department's proposal 
for an obstacle course similar to that used 
in commando training. 

One of the reasons for the formation of 
the committee was the increase in College 
Scholastic warnings this summer.

An Unjust Law 

Every houseparty the Undergraduate Council announces that "girls 
arc allowed in the college dormitories from 11 :00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and at 
no other time." Tlii.s year-h)iig college rule in the past has been as fre- 
quently violated as it has been infrequently enforced, and consequently 
a basic inequality in it was not revealetl until recently, when the college 
decided to renew strict enforcement. 

The inequality from the fact that the Gaifield ('lub, which 
ceiilors around the two bottom floors of college-owned Currier Hall, has 
no small, informal living rooms in which its members can legally entertain 
woman guests after 7:00 i).in., whereas the college docs not ])rohibit any 
friitci-nity from entertaining women after that hour. This inequality 
results from the college's apjilication of the 7:00 p.m. rule lo the top floors 
of Currier Hall, the ('lub's counter])art to informal fraleiiiily living rooms. 

To remove this injustice, the college should permit the Club to make 
its own rules concerning the entertaining of women guests in Currier 
Hall, just as the fraternities are permitted to regulate their own conduct 
of such mailers. These rules could be evolved by the Club with the help 
of its faculty adviser and the dean. By this reform, the Club would have 
a building regulated on the same democratic basis as the fraternities. 

We recomnu'Md this reform not only for its short-term benefits in 
the removal of a glaring injustice, but also because the most beneficial 
means of making a people assume responsibility is to give them re- 
sponsibility. At present there is a difference of opinion in the Adminis- 
tration respecting this general principle. We join the vast majority of 
AVilliams undergraduates who continually demand more student govern- 
ment because that is the means by which each of us can, with .self-respect 
and justice, a.ssume responsibility. We strongly hope that the college 
will not continue to inflict an injustice u])on the members of the Garfield 
Club because of the inequality arising from the enforcement of the 7:00 
I).m. rule. , ' ' ;

Letters to the Editor 

To the Editors of The Record; 

In a recent number of The Record, the 
account of the last Williams-Amherst base- 
ball game contained the statenieiu that 
the no-hit performance by the Amherst 
pitcher was believed to be the first in the 
history of Williams-Amherst conipelilion. 

Although it is a somewhat painful duty, 
respect for our old rivals coni|)els nie to 
advise you that in May, 1909, .MeClure, 
Amherst pitcher, performed the same feat 
against us. The gatue is described in 
The Williams Record of Ma\- 27, IQ09. 

I am sorry not to be able to meiuion a 
Williams "no-hitter" against Amherst, but 
perhaps someone whose memory goes back 
further mine can bring one to light. 
{Signed) Abbott P. Mills '11 
P.S. I do not have available the 1910 
Records, but I have a vague recollection 
that McClure may have pitched a second 
no-hit game against us in that year. 

{Well might Reader Mills remember 
McClure' s no-hit performance, for it knocked 
twenty-nine points off his .310 hatting 
average. On May 19, 1910 McClure hurled 
another no-hitter, defeating H'illtams, 2-0.

Editorial Policy 

To the Editors of The Record: 

No end impressed by the character of 
editorials and editorial policy of The 
Record during recent months. Con- 
gratulations on your constructive approach 
which faces significant campus facts in a 
direct and well thought out manner. A 
vigorous and alert student publication is 
needed now as never before to serve as a 
strong reminder that Williams has a real 
responsibility, a dynamic role to pla\. 
Yesterday is gone; men not boys is the cr\- 
of the hour. . men who have learned to 
coordinate body, mind and spirit . . men 
who have learned to put first things first 
on every front. Lacking this objective, 
the College becomes as a stumbling block 
in our time. To faculty, Student Hoily 
and Alumni your editorial punches have 
come as a vital stimulus toward mainten- 
ance of the track of common-sense. Ma\' 
you continue to keep the cob-webs of 
inefiiciency and indifference from the 
Williams scene.

Robert H. Kittredge '43, president <it 
the I'nilergraduate Council, declared 
toda> that he hoped all social units would 
postpone house elections until the 
U. C. announces a new plan for an "under- 
graduate representative system" of stu- 
dent government. Kittredge was unable 
to give details as to what form the U. C. 
proposal would take, but he did indicate 
that information would soon be forth- 
coming from the Council. 

The Dean's Office this week announced 
the resignation of Charles F. Yeiser '43

Indian Situation 

To the Editors of The RECORD: 

If Frederick L. Schuman would mark, 
learn and inwardly digest the Indian 
situation more justly and carefully, he 
would be more guarded in his statements. 
It would be of benefit to him to read the 
article by Sir Stafford Cripps in the 
magazine section of the New York Times 
of August 23. 

I regret that you publish such state- 
ments which may influence the young men 
wrongly and hurt our cause. 

W. K. Odell 

( What has really hurt our cause is the 
lack of more men like Mr. Schuman who

Archibald MacLeish's Fall of the City, a 
one-act radio play, adapted to stage per- 
formance by Mr. Flowers, to be produced 
by the Art of the Theatre class as a 
laboratory experiment, is scheduled to be 
presented on the same program with 
Trial by Jury. 

Castings for the Gilbert and Sullivan

Williamstown Ready Within Six Hours 
To Shelter Over a Hundred Evacuees 

"Within six hours after notification by 
the Massachusetts Civilian Defense head- 
quarters, Williamstown will be able to 
take care of at least 1 20 evacuees from such 
cities as Boston, Springfield, Worci'ster, 
and even Hartford," John Allison '23, 
chairman of both the Civilian Defense and 
Red Cross Disaster Committees in Wil- 
liamstown, declared yesterday. 

"Although we have notified the Civilian 
Defense authorities that we have ample 
accommodations for as many as 120 
refugees," Mr. Allison went on, "there is 
always the possibility that we might have 
a^ jnany as 400 or 500 evacuees on our 
hands, should the larger cities in Mass- 
achusetts be very severely bombed. In 
that case, we would be unable to care for 
all these people with our present housing 
iirrangements, ujdess the college came to 
our aid. Fortunately, we have been told 
tliat if such an emergency did occur, Wil- 
liams will cooperate with the local Civilian 
Defense and Red Cross to the fullest 

RefuKees in AMT 
Mr. Allison stated that if only 1 20 
evacuees are assigned to Williamstown, 
ihe present arrangements will prove com- 
pletely satisfactory. The buildings that 
have been made ready for occupation by 
refugees are the Adams Memorial 'I'licator, 
the Mitchell School, the (irange Hall, the 
Opera Mouse, and the Broad Brook School 
in the nearby village of While Oaks. 
Sanitary conditions in all these shelters 
are well above the standard demanded by 
Civilian Defense heachiuarters in Boston. 
Sleeping facilities in the Adams Memori- 
al Theater will be provided by several of 
the fraternity houses along Main Street, \ 
Mr. Allison continued. Cots and blankets 
can be quckly carried across to the 
theater, when it is learned that evacuees 
are being sent to the Berkshire region for 
safety. The four other shelters will be 
equipped with cots and bedding donated 
by the townspeo|)le, or supplied by the 
Red Cross. Mr. Allison added that the 
theater w ill be able to house approximately 
forty homeless people, with evacuees 
sleeping in the basement. 

llcadquurtci-ft in Gym 
Both Civilian Defense and Red Cross 
headquarters will he establisheil in the 
Lasell Gynmasium, as soon as an emer- 
.gency arises. In addition to serving as 
the center of operations for all committees 
of registration, transportation, food and 
supply, and health, the gym will be used 
to house refugees in case more than the 
anticipated 120 arrive. To meet such 
an emergency, the college will requisition 
the day-beds from dormitory studies, 
and move them into the gymnasium. Mr. 
Allison added that the college has a limited 
supply of blankets and sheets on hand. 

which can be used to supply those refugees 
stationed in the gym with bedding. 

ff the occasion demanded it, Mr. 
Allison said that some dormitories might 
be turned over to the Civilian Defense 
authorities to serve as shelters. The 
Williams Annex, for instance, can be 
speedily made ready for such use. 
t;hurclic» Are KitelienH 

The local Congregational, Mi'thodist, 
Baptist and Episcopal churches will serve 
as feeding stations for the evacuees. As 
all these buildings have their own kitchens 
for church suppers, they are considered 
perfectly fitted for the task of cooking 
food for large numbers of peopl<'. Both 
the local Grange and the Mitchell and 
Broad Brook schools are also e(|uipped 
with kitchen facilities. Mr. Allison dis- 
closed that there is probably enough food 
at the local stores to provide at least two 
or three meals for the refugees, .\fter 
that time, the Civilian Defense comniiuee 
will have to get supplies from whcjKsale 
stores and warehouses in North Adams and 
Pittsfield. A survey has been takiii of 
local store-houses to get an idea of how 
much food the\' can provide. 

All necessary supplies of food and ilolh- 
ing will be bought by the Civilian Diiiiisr 
authorities with requisition blanks giscn 
them by the Red Cross. These blanks 
will act as payment until appropriations 
bv the state's Civilian Defense boaril

Trucks, Cars, Stalion-Wapons 

In ail probability, evacuees w'ill be sent : 
io Williamstown by railroad. Thesi' 
I special trains will be met at the station by 
cars, trucks, and station-wagons donated 
by hundreds of volunteers, who have 
responded to the transportation com- 
milter's plea for transportation facilities. 
The station-wagons can be used as ini- 
pro\ i.^ed ambulances, should there be 
wounil.'d persons among the refugees. Mr. 
Allisnii stated that this was improbable, 
howcMT, since Williamstown does not 
possess the medical facilities needed to 
handle the badly injured. 

The e\'acuees svill then be taken directly 
to the Lasell (i\-mnasium, where they will 
be registered ;md submitted to a medical 
examination under the direction of Or. 
Kenneth R. McAlpin, of the Williams 
Health Department. Those evacuees found 
to be suffering from disease or sickness of 
any sort will be segregated from the others, 
and sent to the North Adams Normal 
.School, which has recently been equipped 
for hospital purposes. Those considered 
in good health will be assigned to the 
dilTerent shelters. Exlni clothing will be 
provided through priv .ive donations, or the 
Red Cross commiitoe, which has been 
making socks, swcilers. suits, and dr.'sses 
for more than a vrar. 

'Gulielmensian' Elects 
Five Sophs to Board

NYA Grants Williams 
Funds for Student Aid 

Consistent with the governmental ruling 
of last week, National Youth Adminis- 
trati(m funds will again pour into Williams- 
town to aid students ccmlributing to their 
own support or tuition, Albert V. Oster- 
hout '06, executive secretary of the Com- 
mittee on Student Aid, announced today. 

Tuesday was the da\- set for official 
reopening of the plan which has been much 
discussed in the last half year. Though 
the allotment sent to Williams has suffered 
the universal forty per cent cut levied on 
the entire appropriation, Mr. Osterhout 
characterized the curtailment as "quite 
natural" and, went on to add that the 
college plans to employ more men this 
year than before in spite of the loss of 

The full allotment sent to Williams last 
year was never expended, mainly because 
of an interruption last January, when all 
funds were cut off pending discussion and 
examination of the project by the govern- 
ment, and also because the plan started 
late at this college. Last year forty stu- 
dents participated in the plan, helping in 
secretarial and laboratory work, as well as 
in correcting and filing.

Holiling down starting tackle positions 
would be John Stiegman and Art Vorys. 
Stiegman, a guard in the 1941 season, has

last year's first four tackles. Others who 
might take over the position would be

20 Sign for All-College 
Debating Tournament 

Dartmouth Nips Varsity 
on Sales Tax Problem 

Twenty undergraduates have signified 
their intent to participate in the Adelphic 
Union's All-College tournament, according 
to Frank M. Wozencraft '44, chairman of 
the event. At a meeting Tuesday they 
definitely decided to debate on the com- 
pulsory chapel question, and voted to 
liostpone the opening round from Friday, 
Seinember 11 to Tuesday, September 15. 
'Suak llio Poor' 

The varsity debating team lost a split 
decision to Dartmouth in Griffin Hall 
Saturday afternoon when they failed to 
con\'ince the audience of more than 
twenty-live undergraduates and faculty 
members "That Congress should impose a 
retail sales tax." Wozencraft and Thomas 
S. Walsh '44, arguing that the t.ix would 
be an added source of revenue and a check 
on inflation, did not successfully prove 
that the measure would not "soak the 
poor." The two judges, Fred II. Stocking 
and William S. Dix, Jr., English instruc- 
tors, failed to agree on a decision, so the 
audience vote for the negative was

No J. V. for Subs 

In spite of the freshman eligibilit\' rule, 
it has been decided to retain a freshman 
team rather than start a J.V. outfit for 
second-stringers. Outstanding yearling 
bcjoters may be added to the varsity 
s(|uad. The freshmen, coached by Bob 
Miiir, will not be called out until after 
Labor Hay, when they will start practice 
for their four-game schedule. 

Both schedules include the traditional 
Little Three games, but transportation 
dirficulties have made it impossible to 
book two other soccer ri\'als, Yale and 
Hamilton. This year the .\niherst soccer 
games will be played on the day of the 
Weslejau football game, instead of on the 
morning of the Amherst football encount- 
er, November 14. 


(Continued from page 1) 

"ditch jumping" have been eliminatefl 
because of the danger of turned ankles if 
such olistacles are made difficult enou>.di to 
be worthwhile. Since it would spoil the 
continuity of the course, there will be no 
rope clinib. Spaced appro.ximately ten 
yards apart, each obstacle is ilesigned to 
be e(|ui\;dent to, or harder than, those al 
Army and Nav>' camps. 

Bear Cage' Difficult 

I he "jungle climb" or "bear cage" is 
the most difficult of the obstacles planned. 
It is made up of four log walls six feet high 
placed across the run. To pass the bai- 
liers (he runner must climb over the lirst, 
under the second, over the third, and under 
the last. 

I'nique to the Williams layout is the 
forty-six-foot zig-zag run. Each running 
aisle will be bounded by low wooden rail- 
ings that force the racer into a criss-cross 

The seven-and-a-half-foot bare wall 
tliat is the last obstacle is higher li\- six 
inches than the wall specified for climbing 
by the Army. The Army also specifies 
toe-holes for the wall while Williams men 
will be required to clinib a perfectly' 
smooth surface. 

Horizontal Ladders 
To strengthen arm muscles the course 
includes a set of horizontal ladders fifteen 
feet long and eight feet high. 'The runner 
must go the whole length of the ladder 
without touching the ground to complete 
the course successfully. 

Actual practice for warfare is simulated 
when each man must crawl for thirty feet 
under wires twenty inches high. Mr. 
Bullock commented, "We definitely will 
not use barbed wire." 

Other conditioning devices will be a two- 
and-a-half-foot hurdle, a twelve-foot lad- 
der and jump, and a pair of two-foot 
underpasses with a four-foot hurdle in

Winch Offers Machine 
Shop Training Course 

All Students Interested 
Should Enroll Sept. 2 

Those interested in taking machine 
shop training as prei)arati(;in for military 
service or for an\' other reason are urged 
t(i attend a meeting in the physics lecture 
room at 8:00 p. m. next Wednesday to 
enroll in the third of a series of machine 
courses. 'The second of these fifteen-week 
courses will end a week from today, stated 
Prof. Ralph P. Winch of the physics 
department, who conducts the machine 
training. If there is sufficient interest 
the third will begin September 14. 

Students taking the training will learn 
how to operate lathes, milling machines, 
shapers, and planers. Since the purchase 
of two automobile engines in June em- 
phasis will be placed on the study of 
internal combustion engines. 'The sche- 
dule will consist of one three-hour class 
each week for each member of the course. 
Machinist's Mate Training 

Although students will receive no college 
credit for this course. Professor Winch 
feels that the instruction will be a definite 
aid to those planning to enter the air or 
tank corps, act as machinist's mate on a 
ship, or those who wish to improve their 
rating in the Marine Corps. 

This machine-shop training has been 
inaugurated at Williams by Professor 
Winch to keep the C(illege in step with 
similar opportunities (iffered by the 
government to non-students. 'The first 
course was restricted to seniors and those 
registered in the draft, while the second 
course was open to all and included two 
faculty members. The new scries of

Harriers Start Work 
On Regulation Course 

Bolstered hy the addition of several 
new prospects for varsity service, the cross 
country stiuad early this week shifted from 
calisthenics and warming-up exercises to 
the regulation course as practice began in 
earnest for the fall schedule. 

With Captain Dave Brown, Maurie 
Goodbody, and Ed Sheffield, all back 
from last year's team, piaetices will 
concentrate on regular running of the 
inter-collegiate two-and-a-half mile course 
until the Middlebury meet October 9. 

'The return of Hack Nielson, winner ol 
the Little 'Three freshman championship 
two seasons ago, raised hopes for a strong 
team. Out all last year with an ankle 
injury, Nielson returned to the s(|uad 
Monday and has shown considerabli^ 
promise in the practice runs this week. 

B\'ron George looms as the number one 
freshman threat on the s<|uad, and may see

Poor Interest, Absences 
Handicap Chances For 
Building Winning Team 

by 15BUCE McCl.Ei.bAN '45 

MissiiiK tlii'ir assignments and for- 
j;, 1 1 ing their plays during thf ganu' 
sciininiam' tliis Weilncsday, the varsity 
fiiotball team fail<'<l to show even the 
ixginninsjs of a polish after three weeks of 
practice. Lack of interest and continual 
ahsences have been major factors in the 
slow progress the squad is making. 

During early |)ractice Coach Charlie 
Caldwell attributed ragged playing to 
inexperience. There has been so lillle 
improvement, however, that he is loving 
with the idea of picking twenty-hvi' men 
for a travelling game s(|ua(l. 

Signs (]( sloi)py playing became evident 
in the Tuesday alternoon signal diill 
called b>- Caldwell to work off the effects of 
a four-day vacation from practice. Ctit to 
fifty of the most promising players and 
using Cole Kield for the first time, the 
eaTididates ccnilinually missed their timing. 
Whether It's Worthwhile 

A full ganu' scrimmage run Wednesday 
afternoon found the hacklield men running 
weakly and blocking poorU'. At the 
same time linemen were loafing or charging 
only slowly. Caldwell says that his men 
aren't thinking about football excc-pt to 
wonder whether it's worthwhile. 

A pessimistic Wl'H bulletin (|Uoled in 
Time as contending ihat football is in its 
last year has helped to dampen Eph spirits. 
Helping also to cut enthusiasm is the 
rumor that l.?0 men will resign from college 
al the end of lids semester.

daily ahsences of from ten to twelve 
players. At \Vednes(la>'s game scrim-

three teams.

of townspeople and students participating 
in the September 18 double feature pro-

college musical organizations, the AMT

•V program of this nature has been 
selected for its wide range of appeal, the 
Fall of the City being a oiio act experi-

while Trial by Jury was chosen for its 
appeal as pure entertainment. 

A Community Project 
As described by Max Flowers, director 
of the AMT, the productions represent 
tlie nearest thing to a community project 
yet achieved in the College Theatre. Final 
fiKiires show that thirty-eight of the 
seventy-six actors and actresses partici- 
pating in the program come from the 
surrounding community — Williamstown, 
North Adams, and Adams. 

The lead role in Fall of the City is unusual

Through Allied Relief 

Main items on this year's ilrive ai'e War 
Relief, for which S700 has bei'U ajipro- 
priated, and the Williamstown Boys' 
Club, which will receive SIOOO. 'This 
year, the second in which the former item 
has appeared on ihi' proposed budget, will 
see the money collected for this cause 
handled through the local chapter of 
Allied War Relief. 

The committee feels, however, that the 
important investmensts begun in former 
years should at all costs be continued, and 
in line with this the largest sum on the 
budget is intended for the Boys' Club, an 
organization which, under the supervision 
of the WCA, sponsors social and athletic 
programs for the youth of Williamstown. 
Additional Equipment 

Having maintained a cam|) situated on 
Northwest Hill for eight weeks during the 
sunntier, the club will continue to function 
as usual this winter under the direction of 
Edward R. Howe '44. Out of the surplus 
of last year's drive, $250 was spent on 
additional e(|uipinent for the Boys' Club 
building <in Cole Avenue.

Stimson Sees Students 
In Armed Forces Soon 

Secretars of War Henr\ L. Stimson, 
according to an Associated Press dis- 
patch, yesterday issued notice to student 
members of the Army Knlisted Reserve 
Corps that they face call to active military 
duty on reaching the mininuim legal age 
for service, which at present is 20 years. 
With the increasing war demands for 
manpower making this action necessar\', 
Secretary Stimson indicated that the 
calling up of reser\ists will not start until 
the completion of the college semester 
beginning this September. 

In line with Secretary .Slimson's notice, 
Williams' student members of the AERC, 
who are of the legal age. may e.xpect to be 
calleil to aetix'e dut\' flii\' time after 
Februar> \i. 1943. 

Inder ecnidilions al the lime of ihi- 
creation of tlm Eiilist<'d Reserve, the War 
|)i|iartiiienl held the belief thai the large 
majority of students shoulil remain in 
college, but if the necessity of war de- 
manded, the Secretary of War might call 
nieniliers of the AKKC lo active duty. 
Exigencies of War 

"The exigencies of the war ha\i' now 
become such," Stimson told his ])ress 
conlerenee \*estertla> , "that it is now ex- 
pectetl that b\" the end of the college term, 
or semi";ter lit.i.innine in. Septernber those 
student members of the reserve who have 
now reached selectixe service age will all, 
or for the most part, be called lo activi'

War Loans Will Aid 
Top Science Majors 

Under the new student war loan pro- 
gram, recently announced 1)\ .Xcting- 
Director Kendric M. Marshall, students 
working on an "accelerated program" who 
maintain satisfactory scholarship (C 
average or better) are eligible lo 
receive government loans limited to 
tuition fees plus S25 per month if they arc 
majoring in clieinistr\-, physics, engineer- 
ing, dentistry, medicine, or pharmaceutics. 

No further information has been re- 
leased concerning the new program which 
is lo be administered by the Office of 
Education, is designed to fill shortages of 
trained personnel in \ital war services, and 
calls for a S.S,00(),nOO Congressional 

A more direct instance of the Williams- 
science-war situation was revealed today 
in a letter from the father of Paul L. 
Kohnslamm '44 to Dr. J. Fiteh King, head 
of the Chemislrx' neparlment, in which 
Mr. Kohnslamm offered Pnifessor King 
supplies from II. Kohnstamm & Co. if need 
arose. 'The latter plant has been making 
chemicals for printers ink, laundry sup- 
plies, candy flavorings, and dves since 

(But since Albert Grindy '16 has already 
d(maled a two to ten years supply of 
chemicals lo the college there appears to 
be no such shortage present. Professor King 
has added further that the department's 
A-2 priority rating, issued in the summer 
of 1941, has been rai.sed by the WPB to an 
A-1-a rank which he believes will insure 
an additional supply.

Sliould any one of tlie 19 II officers be forced to withdraw from college 
before his lenn expires, promotion to fill his vacant i)<)st will be tletermined 
by the 1911 board. 

A Primary Choice 

Here in Williainstown next Tuesday, the Republicans of a small 
section of Massachusetts will play their part in deteiniining the destiny 
of America in today's war and tomorrow's peace, llaymond L. Buell, 
comparative political newcomer and aggressive Willkie-ite, will contest 
tlie Republican nomination in the First Massachusetts Congres.sional 
District with Allen T. Treadway, old guard Representative of twenty- 
nine years experience. 

The siip|)orters of Mr, Treadway have charged that candidate Buell 
is "an academic theorist with no [iractical knowledge of domestic and 
world affairs and no proven ability to understand political problems," 
They claim for Mr. Treadway "a long record of wise and constructive 
statesmaiLship." Wc fail to see how any voter who takes the trouble to 
look at the record can pay any serious attention to either of these claims. 
Here arc the facts on Mr. Treadway: 

Treadway's Record 
In 19:59 Treadway voted against the fortification of (iuam. 
In 1939 Treadway voted against the repeal of the arms embargo 
In I9,'$9 Treadway voted against ai)i)r(ipriatioiis for military aircraft. 
In 1911 Treadway defieil Wendell Willkie's Rei)ublican leadership 
to vote against the Act. 

In the .same year he voted against the extension of the draft. 
And only three weeks before Pearl Harbor Treadway voted against 
lifting "combat-zone" restrictions on the shipment of ma- 
terials to those fighting the common enemy. 

In .short, "Treadway's record is one of coiusisteiit champion.ship of 
the self-strangulation of American trade, of narrow, and of 
opjiosition to all attcin|)ts to establish a wori<l order which might assure 
peace and ])lenty to .\mericans and to other free i)eoples." (Frederick 
L. Scluiman in a letter to the North Adams Transcript.) 
On the other hand, here are the facts on Buell: 

BuelPs Record 
In the si)riiig of 19.'i9 he published his I'oland: Key lo Europe, which 
clearly foresaw liow and where the second World War would begin. 

In 1910 lie published his Isolated America, which warned America 
of the tragic consequences of isolationist neutrality and of the desperate 
urgency of opjiosing with all our strength the Fascist attempt to ccm(|uer 
the world if we would hojje to preser\'c our own freedom. 

From 1927 to 19.39, first as research director and later as president 
of liie Foreign Policy Association, he brought together and administered 
with rare skill the important groui) of scientific workers in tlie 
T.Iniled States in the field of world affairs. 

In 1910 he was a prominent member of Wendell Willkie's camjiaign 

At the same time that he has demonstrated his thorough understand- 
ing of world politics as a leading author and educator, he has iiroved iiis , 
ability to handle |)ractical iirobicnis in many ]>olilical conferences and 
executive positions. In other words, again to quote Mr. Schuman, 
Bnell "has had extensive practical experience over a long ])eriod of 
years. . and has always displayed a firm gra.sp of world realities and a 
clear vision of the responsibilities which America must assume if tlie 
United States and the United Nations are to win the war and the peace." 
In the face of the records, the duty of the Republican voters in this 
community seems clear. They must between, on the one hand, 
the bankrn]>t leadership of a man whose twenty-nine years of Congression- 
al experience "have consisted for the most jiart of reasoning wrongly from 
wrong premises to wrong conclu.sions and then voting wrongly on almost 
every i.ssue in the field of foreign relations"; and on the other, the dynamic 
state.smaii.ship of a man whose elect On will go far toward making the next 
.Congress "a Congress of leaders who see far and who .see straight; a 
Congress for Victory, in war and peace alike." 

If, then, the Republicans of this community arc to fulfill their 
obligation as citizens of America and of the world, they must cast t heir 
primary vote for Raymond Buell. 

Only by decisive action to integrate 
the college moreclo.sely with the war 
effort can thecommitteeelimiiiate the 
present confusion and discontent. 
Furthermore, the new war board has 
the responsibility of killing rumors 
which ereateuncertainty, Itssquelch- 
iug of the recent rumor that the 
faculty wants to put all undergrad- 
uates on no-cuts represents a forceful 
step in this direction. Dean Greg- 
ersen, a member of the committee, 
said yesterday that no .such acton 
was eonlem])lated by the faculty, 
nor would any major change in the 
cut laws ever be taken without 
first consulting the students. 

The need for a studeut-i'aculty 
body which has the power to legislate 
on mutual problems becomes more 
obvious every day, particularly be- 
cause the creation of the new war 
committee represents definite |)ro- 
gress in this direction. If the cut- 
ting system is not working, a stu- 
dent-faculty representative body 
could logically tackle the iiroiilem. 
Likewise, such a body could survey 
the P, T, set-up, which we believe 
has made stupendous gains during 
the last four weeks; investigate the 
need for more war courses; help 
solve the injustices arising from 
the enforcement of the 7:00 p.m. 
wonicn-in-dormitory rule; and part- 
icipate further in .solving many other 
l)roblems which are now preventing 
Williams from doing its best with 
this war. We ho])e the I'ndergrad- 
uatc Council, in evolving a new 
form for student government, will 
incorporate in its projjosals the 
student - faculty body which ha.s 
already been i)resaged by the new 
war committee.

The New War Committee 

Last week the Committee on the State of the C-ollege in a World at 
War was formed, of five faculty members and as many under- 
graduates. Its |) is to di.scover whether Williams is doing its part 
with the greatest po.ssible effectiveness in contributing towards winning 
the war. Of course this committee will discover that the college is not 
making its best jio.ssible contribution. Our present low morale i)roves 
this. Several facts of the past summer — particularly coiicerniiig P, T., 
housej)artics. Hell Week, and warnings — reveal that our esprit de corps 
i.s far below the interventionist spirit of Williams in spring 19H. 

The new war committee faces a gigantip task in finding out the facts 
responsibile for our low morale, and in evolving remedies where possible. 

When The Record went to press, the 
following were in the Tlionipsoji Infirmary: 
Montgomery, Morgan '4,?; Given, RatlifT 
'44; Elder, Henry, and Older '45. 

Hecause the beginning of the fall 
athletic season and the second harvest of 
local crops coincide, an acute need for help 
on local farms has arisen. Any under- 
graduates able to engage in the harvesting 
work and with a free afternoon should 
register with Mr. Osterhout in 5 Hoplcins 
Hall at their earliest convnience,

small moustache. The other vandal was 
described as about live feet eight inches in 
height, dark-coniplexiiimd, with hair 
parted in the middle, wearing a brown 
suit and no hat. 

The interior of the lini was thoroughly 
wrecked. Charcoal from the fireplace 
was fr)und strewn on the floor. Tables 
and chairs in the dining rooms and bar 
were destroyed, and pickets were kicked 
out of the main stairway. 

Working with Chief Royal on the case 
is State Detective John K. Horgan of 
Pittsfield. Further developments, such 
as reported theft of licpior from the bar, 
may come to light in the near future, 
authorities claim. 

Mrs. Bolster is receiving medical atten- 
tion for injuries and severe shock. 

iicmgv M. Hopkins 

The Record extends its sympathy 
to the f.iniily of the late George M. 
Hopkins — for many years a prom- 
inent merchant in Wiltiamstown and 
always a respected friend of Williams.

(Tliii is the fourth in a series of articles 
designed to give a comprehensive view of the 
opportunities available to college men lor 
pulrioiic service. The Editors.) 

For those wishing to fly and unable to 
meet the more rigid physical and educa- 
tional requirements of aviation cadets, 
there 's ava'laWe the opportunity of be- 
loining glider pilots in the newest and most 
promising outgrowth of the Army Air 

No longer does the glider service de- 
mand previous flight experience. Pros- 
jH'Ctivf candidates, between the ages of 18 
anil 36, now have only to ])ass physical and 
mental tests. Mental examinations are of 
ilie aptitude type, requirements being 
somew hat reduced from those demanded of 
aviation cadets, and for the physical ex- 
.unination, though the same as for flying 
duty, demands are also lower. 

Private and Klyiiif; Pay 

The course of instruction lasts 13 weeks 
and is divided into two parts. The first, 
preparatory in nature, consists of learning 
to fly a light airplane, the second part, 
training in glider piloting. As a student, 
the trainee is enlisted in the Army Air 
Korces as a private and receives flying jjay 
in addition to his regular salary. Upon 
successful completion of the course, he 
receives the rank of staff sergeant with 
flying pay, a few outstanding members of 
each class being commissioned second 
lieutenants in the Army and receivin(; fly- 
ing pay in that grade. 

For those applicants with pilot's lici'iiscs

Delta Phi Claims Mythical Softball Title; 
Defeated Faculty Club Is Host at Dinner 

With the same master stroke the Delta 
Phi Softball team annexed the mythical 
college championship and overcame trad- 
ition yesterday noon by turning back the 
Faculty nine 4 to 2 on the hitter's new 
Weston F'ield stadium, and later enjoying 
a uniiiue repast at the Faculty Clubhouse. 
Save for a rare football banquet this was 
the first student dinner ever enjoyed at 
the professorial sanctum sanctorum. 

Climaxing the campus world series, the 
facultN- hospitality was suiumed up by the 
nine old men's star twirler, Charley Keller, 
who connnented, "After all, we've pla\ed 
ball before, but as for having students 
here for dinner. . . !" 

It all started when the D. Phis dropped a 
close 5-4 decision on their home sod sewral 
weeks ago but succeeded in winning the 
veterans' acceptance to dinner. There 
follow<'d a second encounter last wi'ek 
featuring a 12-1 batfest in favor of the 
intramural leaders which evened the series 
count. Yesterday's victory thus definite- 
ly established the D. Phis, who have won 
fourteen and lost one (to the facuU\-). 
claim to the college title. 

Delta Phi Inning 

The game itself was decided in the first 
three innings of play and thereafter both 
teams seemed pre-occupied with other 
ideas — dinner perhaps. Benfield led 
off for the visitors with a line single off 
Killer Keller, followed by a le.\as-league 
double b\- Fowler. When Heppes reached 
first on a base hit, Roy Tolles stepped up 
to the plate and cracked a resounding 
double off the centcrfield bleachers, 
cleaning the bases and knocking in three 
runs e.stablishing himself on second. 
The old-timers struck back in the same 
frame after Richardscjn issued a pass to 
Buffinliin, Young singleil, and Larrupin' 
I'red Stocking lifted a double to right field, 
bringing in one tally. 

In the third canto the Delta Phis gained 
their linal marker as Fcjwler started off 
with a bingle. Heppes was out at third 
on a hard throw in from center by Gilletl; 
and T'olh's repeated by driving the fourth 
run in with a secimd drive to center. The 

iiming closed when speedster T. J. Wood 
raced up against the left field fence to rob 
pitcher Richardson of a sure hit. In their 
half of the frame, the Faculty chalked up 
their second and final score when a duo of 
errors combined with I'red Stocking's 
blast to right field t<i drive in Buffinton, 
who'd been walked earlier. 

I )espite Faculty thr<'ats of "no des.sert", 
substitute umpire Walt Kosar officially 
<iiiled the ganu- at 5:45 p.m., when the 
students triumphanth' marched offfortheir 
victory buffet-dinner, later followed by 
an extensive lour of the modern clubhouse. 

In addition to the members of both 
teams, the wives of the facult\- players 
were present at dinner. Other guests in- 
cluded Ed Pennell, who, according to 
hurler Keller, "umped most of our games" ; 
and Art Stevenson, permanent scribe and 
keeper of the score for the Delta Phis.

Garfield Club Asks More Responsibility, 
Petitions for Control of Currier Hall 

AiKitlicr sti-|) toward llic achirvfiiii'iit

will bv rfalizod if tlic C'uliegc a<liniiustr;\-

day liy the C.arficld Club to gain a "trans- 
fer of rcs|)onsil)ility" to C'lul) e\eeutives for 
the government of Currier Hall. Re- 
stricted to the use of the two downstairs 
loungis in Currier, Chd) nu-inhers have 
found theniseUes without the means (or 
iMitertaining guests privately after supper, 
especially since the College has begun 
stringently to enforce its long dormant rule 
that "No women are allowed in the 
dormitories between 7:00 p.m. and 11;00 

Certain that any rules o( disciiiline can 
be better enforced by a student discipline 
committee, Club leaders were moved to act 
by the desire of the majority of the mem- 
bers to be granted the use of upstairs 
Currier Hall rooms as pri\-ate living rooms 
for the entertainment of guests, as is the 
present custom at the fraternity houses. 
With lapses of time occurring between 
supi)er and the beginning of most college 
dances, and with all public gathering- 
places closed after midnight Saturdajs, 
Club members are now forced to visit 
fraternit\- houses where upstairs ro(nns 
are considered as living rooms, and where 
fraternity men govern their own actions, 
pledged to a( t as "gentlemen." The only 
alternative in the past has been the 
conuiioii practice of entertaining guests in 
Currier Hall rooms in violation of the rule 
which the College Administration ad- 
mitti'dly has been unable to enforce. 
Policing Dislusteriil 

That those who have been punished for 
violation of the rule deser\-e such punish- 
ment, no one in the Club denies, but th.' 
feeling is general that had the Club been 
in charge of disciiiline at the time, more 
respect for anv rule would have been 
wid<'spread, and that future policing by 
college agents wOuld be distasteful.

men then expressed the opinion that any 
rule can be better enforced by willing 
students than by "soft-shoed college cops." 
They reasserted their belief that the 
assiunption of responsibilit>' b\' the Club 
would make for more realistic rules, and 
for elTective enforcement of those rules.

Alan K. liurich '4,S, stresseil the idea 
that just as the College has found the 
Honor .System in the classroom to be the 
most effective method of discipline, "bo 
will they find that the Honor System 
in social discipline will bring a healthier 
respect and better observance of rides." 
He went on to propose .1 committee system 
for all the college dorms. 

Undecided as to what body has the 
ultimate authority for deciding such 
matters, the petition committee, appointed 
by .Stults, and consisting of Frederic S. 
.Nathan and Walter 1'. Kosar '43, Henry L. 
N'iemitz '44, Peter D. Silverstone '45, 
and Robert D. Coye. Jr. '46, decided to

Economic Association 
Met Here on Saturday 

The Economic Histors .Association held 
its second annual meeting in Williamstown 
last week-end. The association, made up 
primarily of university and college pro- 
fessors, held its first meeting last year at 
l^rinceton University. The members were 
welcomed by President James P. Baxter,

The principal speakers were Frank H. 
Knight, University of Chicago; J. Mau-

Heberton Evans Jr., Johns flopkins Uni- 
versity, and John Nef also from the Uni- 
versity of Chicago. ICach man is a

at the Williams Inn on Saturday night. 
Etbvin F. Gay, President of the Asso-

now director of the Huntington Library

Lerner Terms Presidential Message 
Heartening Demonstration of Leadership 

by David W. Thurston '44 

Max Lerner, professor of political 
science, yesterda>- termed President Roose- 
velt's Labor Da\- radio message as "one of 
the most heartening demonstrations of the 
Chief Executive's leadership that we have 
had in some time." 

"The most important phrase in this 
speech," declared Dr. Lerner, "is 'This is 
the t(jughest war in history,' for it shows 
the President is determined that we are 
not going to lose the war because of in- 
action on the home front. The President 
knows that this democracy will Itise the 
war if it is not a strong state, and he also 
knows it can be strong without being 

"We are not going to win this war unless 
we have a realh' great people, a great 
leadership," continued the author of the 
widely-read Ideus for Ihe Ice Age. "The 
people have not stood up to their full 
moral stature — we are still bewildered, we 
are still 'circusing' the war as a great 
spectacle. We are eventualK' capable of 
this moral greatness: we are bi'ginning to 
wake up." 

'Congress Has Abdicated' 

"The Congressional reaction to the 
President's talk was on the whole sensible, 
with the exceptions of Senators Taft and 
LaFollette, as the> know that the Presi- 
dent is on good realistic ground," I )r. 
Lerner went on. "Congress has alreacK' 
abdicated from its decisive function and in 
a democracy when one branch abdicates, 
the other,s must take up the slack." 

Dr. Lerner <lid not wish to predict 
whether the Congress would act on the 
establishment of a price ceiling and the 
passage of the tax bill before October 1 as 
the President demanded, but if it does not 
act, then Dr. f.erner feels the President 
will be true to his word ;ind will establish 
them by executive decree. 

Military and Economic 

"This is fiillx within the Chief Execu- 
tive's powers," he asserted, "for during 
war he is not only the military com- 
mander-in-chief, but also the economic 
commander-in-chief. There are precedents 
for this move in the Lincoln, Wilson, and 
Theodore Roosevelt administralions." 

Should the Piesident be forced to take 
this matter into his own hands. Dr. Lerner 
feels it would have no effect upon the 
coming elections, "except to make people 
more and more convinced that the Con- 
gress is not our strongest line of offense 


and defense." This is apparent fmin i],, 

lack of interest in the primaries, hecliiiim-d 

'Sadly Deficient' 

"There are three important lypi 
leadership — military, economic, and (,,„. 
gressional." Dr. Lerner tabbed the injlj. 
tary leadership "good, so far as it hits l.rcn 
tested," and our Congressional as "sadly 
deficient." "There will have to ij^. 
important changes in the economic liiirh 
command," hi' said, "for we are not by any 
means hitting on all cylinders in the 
economic war." 

"Over all of these leaderships," Leincr 
concluded, "is the presidential. We h.tvf 
been waiting for presidential action to 
stimulate Congressional leadership iM, 
was just done. We are still waitini; \.,r 
him to reorganize the economic li;t;h 
command", he stated. "On the iiiilit;ny 
front his speech seemed to promise aciinn 
in opening a second front soon. Rut u<- 
must wait until these words are transkii. d 
into actions."

Thompson Reveals $4015 
Given to Drive in Four 
Days of Annual Appeal 

I lit' eightfcnth annual CliL-st Fund 
I)iivi' of the Williams Christian Asso- 
ciation went over the top of its niinimuni 
gdiil last night with the collection and 
plrtlKinK of $4015 in the four days of the 
appeal, announced Leonard C. Thompson 
'1,;. Chairman of the Committee and 
president of the WCA. "To the collec- 
tors," said Thompson, "much praise is due 
fur a good job well done." 

The drive, soliciting the entire college, 
liiijan Monday evening with a collectors' 
liaiiqui't at the Kappa Alpha House and 
continued through Thursday night. Prin- 
cipal speaker for the bani|uet was (iarilner 
Knight, president of the Pittslield Com- 
munity Chest and actuary of the Berk- 
shire Life Insurance Co. 

High Ratio of Cash 

Encouragingly high this year is the 
r.itio of cash given to pledges made, 
although an estimate of $6.50 as the 
average contribution per man ranks about 
SI. 00 below the average giveii last year. 
I'.mphasis of this drive has again been laid 
on the Boys' Club, which is to receive 
$1000, and on War Relief, for which $700 
has been appropriated. 

To Student Religious Aid ancjther $700 
will be donated, while $200 will go to 
Community Welfare to be given to the 
Welfare Association of W'illianistown. 
College religious work will receive $300. 

Appropriations of $100 have been made 
to the Grenfell Mission and the Tuber- 
culosis Fund. Lingnan I'niversity, near 
Canton, China, will this year receive $1.50, 
while $450 and $250 are to be donated to 
the American Red Cross and WCA emer- 
gency fund respectively. The budget 
also contains $50 for the Student Chris- 
tian Movement. 

Jane Newhall Enlisted 
In Navy WAVE Service 

Is First of Volunteers 
from North Berkshire 

Adding to a faniib- record of military 
.service. Miss Jane Newhall, daughter of 
Acting President Richard A. Newhall, 
enlisted in the women's auxiliary of the 
I - S. Naval Reserve (WAXES) last week, 
being sworn in as the first volunteer from 
Northern Berkshire. The first Berkshire 
County representative was Miss Ann 
L)ii ly of Lee, sister of James S. Deely '43. 

Miss Deely, a graduate of Manhattan- 
ville College this year, will be called with 
ahout 900 other WAVES to Northampton 
on October 6 to begin training. Miss 
Newhall, graduated from Smith this June, 
hopes to be assigned to the first ofTicer 
tr.Tiuing group which will be indoctrinated 
ill Northampton, but as yet she has not 
received her orders. 

Is Apprentice Seaman 

As an Apprentice Seaman in the 
WAVES Miss Newhall will receive a four 
months' basic training course. The ser- 
vice contains three units, into one of 
which she will be allocated after the 
course. Since she lacks technical or 
ailniinistrative training, Miss New^hall 
fiels that she might be placed in the 
coniniunications division, rather than the 
specialized and organizational branches. 
Substituting women for men in these lines 
will leave nicn free for combat service. 

A desire to make a positive contribution 
toward the war cfTort and a chance for 
iKivelty and adventure were cited by Miss 
Newhall as her basic reasons for joining 
Ihe WAVES. Since she was in the midst 
"' exams at Smith when the Army parallel 
program (WAACS) came out, she did not 
consider enlisting in this service. 

Follows Family Tradition 
Military service is a family tradition 
with the Newhalls. Acting President 
Newhall was a licutetiant in the 28th 
Infantry, First Division and Mrs. Newhall 
*rvecl in the Smith College Relief Unit

Caldwell Switches 
Training Emphasis 
To Defensive Play 

Team Spirit on Upswing 
with Middlebury Game 
Only One Week Away 

Emphasis in varsity footliall training 
this week shifted from offense to defense 
as Coach Charlie Caldwell began to bring 
his team to a peak for its debut on Weston 
Field next Saturday against Middlebur\-. 
With the lirsl game only a week away, 
team spiiit is on the upswing, but ab- 
sences are still cutting into the effective- 
ness <if the daily practices. 

Schmidt, Hayes Pass 
Attention was centered early in the 
week on completing a series of pass pla\s. 
Bill Schmi<lt and Gunner Haxeshave been 
rapidly improving their passing arms, and 
this week's work-outs indicate that the 
Eph aerial attack will !>c stronger than 
previoush' expected. 

Practical defensi\<' i ^perience was pro- 
vided on Wednesihn when the second 
team was given the b.ill on the five-yard 
line and told to score as (luickly as possible 
against the opposing lirst eleven. With 
their backs to the wall the first squad 
looked green but h;id ihc light to tie up the 
B team offense. 

The swelterini; Ileal during the week 
conditioned Caldwell's men against a 
repeat petfornianee of last year's heat- 
caused Princeton debacle. That the 
whole squad is ivit in tiptop shape was

Dean Grants Club 
Dormitory Control 

Undergraduates Accept 
Discipline Responsibility 
over Currier Building 

The awaited first movi — "a temporary 
step" — toward the achievement of better 
undergraduate governniini was taken 
this week when Dean llalfdan Gregersen, 
acting upon the re(|uest and petition ol 
the Garfield Club, granted partial control 
'if discipline in Currier Hall to a Club 
riimmittee. This move follows the Club's 
pc'titi<m for more responsibility, and a 
KecORD editorial urging elimination of a 
"glaring injustice" to the Club. 

Stults '43 Heads Comtnittee 

The new government will consist of an 
■ iifcircement committee, headed by Presi- 
dent Walter E. Stults '4,?, and including 
Kobert W. Hinman, Club vice-president, 
and Murray Cohen '43. The group will 
liii\e control over <'nforcement of college 
1 uUs in Currier Hall, but will not have the 
power of making its own rules, as asked in 
the petition. 

Because the committee has not been 
granted the complete "transfer of respons- 
ibility", the college rule stipulating that 
women must be out of the dormitories by 
■/ p. ni. will continue in force, but the com- 
mittee ma\" arrange with the Dean for an 
extension of hours on certain weekends. 
Gregersen Statement 

"We >ha\\ watch the expiriment at 
Currier Hall with interest," remarked 
Dean C.icger.sen. "We feel thai the Gar- 
field Club will successfully assume its 
respiiii-ibility, and will merit its govern- 

Pr(>ident Stults declared that "the Club 
is grateful for this partial recognition of 
its n(|Uests. This development is by no 
means the full measure of responsibility 
and control which we seek, but we are 
obligated to the whole school to make our 
government work, and thus prove this an 
efficient form of dormitory discipline." 

'Record' Poll Reveals 75% of Undergraduate 
Body Favor Abolition of Compulsory Chapel 

(.Tins story is presented in order that 
Williams College will know how under- 
graduates jeel about compulsory chapel. 
The editors believe compulsory should not 
be abolished. This represents a complete, 
we .feel itistified, reversal of policy since 
1935, when the editor quoted below was 
writing. But 50% of tlw staff, and TS''/,. of 
the undergraduate body have a different 
belief, and consequently wc are making the 
story below available to all. Those who 
believe abolition of the compulsory element 
desirable can make their opinion felt through 
the new student government Executive Com- 
mittee now proposed by the U. C. — The 

by Philip K. Hastings '44 
Last week 75% of thestudcnt body voted 
to abolish compulsory chapel. The poll 
was conducted by THE RECORD in order 
to obtain undergraduate opinion regard- 
ing the clement of compulsion now existing 
in religion at Williams. The last such 
poll was held here in 1938 when 54.3% of 
the student body voted to maintain forced 
attendance at chapel once a week. 
Daily Chapel Almlishcd 
Until 1935 Williams men were com- 
pelled to attend daily chapel in addition to 
a Sunday service. At this time a move- 
ment arose to abolish compulsory daily 
chapel, and it was successful. During the 

coiitro\'ersy The RECORD printed .t series 
! of editorials in favor of aVjolition. "Chapel 
has long lacked the character of a religious 
! service. The presence there of so many 
liy coercion and reluctantly created a 
I condition unfavorable to religious worship, 
and the result was a service which, far 
from promoting the religious life of the 
college, actually had an adverse effect." 
The editorials went on to say that "com- 
pulsory chapel robs a man of precisely the 
thing that may make him religious — his 
power to energize his own choice." 
Previous Rccoril Statcnipiit 
After the issue had been settled THE 
Record printed in its editorial colunm the 
following statement; "So far not a word 
has been breathed about compulsory 
Sunday chapel. As a necessary evil it 
may have to remain a Williams institution 
for many years to come. But compulsory 
religion on Sunday, though lasting for an 
hour, is no holier than compulsory religion 
on a week day. Now that the inherent 
contradiction of the latter has been ad- 
mitted, the former must openly and con- 
f?ssedly be maintained inerely to keep 
students in town over the weekend. It 
seems unlikely that this will prove in the 
long run to be a satisfactory basis for the 
expression of religion through worship."

Marines to Begin 
Training Reserves 

Correspondence Course 
Will Teach Essentials 
of Marine Knowledge 

Definite action on the part of the United 
States Marine Corps to pre|)are men in 
colleges who are members of the Corps 
Reserve for future military service was 
taken last week with the institution of a 
correspondence course containing the 
essentials of Marine knowledge. 
Applications Sent Out 

All members of the Marine Reserve who 
are now in college have received applica- 
tion blanks for the course, which is to be 
run on a purely voluntary basis over a six 
month period. The first set of weekly 
lessons are expected to arrive shortly. 

The participants in the course are to be 
given no definite time schedule on which 
to work, and may proceed at their own 
convenience, mailing each completed 
assignment back to the Marine Corps 
Schools at Quantico for correction. Indi- 
vidual records of advancenu'nt will be 
kept there, and students will receive a 
certificate from the Corps on completion 
of the course. In his letter to the mem- 
bers of the Reserve, the course director 
emphasized the fact that the lessons are in 
no way intended to interfere with the 
students' regular college course. 

The subjects making up the course are; 

two lessons on the Marine Corps as a

lessons on Military Discipline; eight

College Votes Thursday 

Robert B. Kittredge '43, President of 
the Undergraduate Council, announced 
this week .i proposed plan for elTective 
student government. The plan calls for 
the creation of an Executive Committee 
of Student Government which will be 
responsible to the student Ijody. It will 
consist of the four class jiresidents, the 
president of the Inter-fraternity Council, 
and two other members from the senior 
class, elected by the si'iiiiir class. Kittredge 
has called a college meeting on September 
24. at 7:,S0 p.m. in Chapin Mall to vote 
on the proposed plan. 

In place of the old Undergraduate 
Council will be the Executive Committee 
of Student Goxernnient and an Inter- 
fraternity Council. The Executive Com- 
mittee will be delegated enough ])ower to 
handle student government effectively 
while the Inter-fraternity Council will 
legislate and enforce regulations on all 
extra-curricular activities which directly 
concern the social groups. Heads of 
houses will automatically be appointed 
to this council. 

The Undergraduate Council presents 
four arguments for innovating the new- 

KeasoiiH Uyr Keviaion 

1) The proposed Inter-fraternity 
Council can devote its time to purely 
fraternity matters and the petty details 
which bog flown the U. C. as it exists now. 
Vital questicns will now be shifted to the 
Executi\e Committee. 

2) The very nature of the U. C, with 
its elections on a fratenuty basis, makesfor 
faction in student government policy. 
.Spoti> membership has resulted in in- 
elTcrti\i' leadership. A large unwieldy 
grou|), looking after fraternity r.ilhcr 
than college welfare, has precluded tlic 
possil)ilit\' of students taking sonu' hand 
in matters of C(;lU'ge policy. 

Lower CUikk Kepresentativcs 

3) The new system pro\'i<les for lower 
class representation, for the real leaders 
of each class will be members of the 
Executive Commiitee. Men elected to 
such positions will be natural leaders, 
an<l by the iin])ortanee of their positions, 
these men will be ins|)ired to conduct their 
affairs to the best interests of the college. 
Lower class representation in student 
government should make elections have 
more meaning, and should tend toward 
greater cohesion in undergraduate opinion 
and action. 

4) In order that undergraduates may 
take a more active part in problems of the 
college, the student body must establish 
an organ capable of inspiring confidence 
in both students and faculty. We be- 
lieve that the proposi'd Executive Com- 
mittee, with the interests of the student 
body .18 a whole to look after, will in- 
evitably provide greater faculty-student 
cooperation. We believe that we are 
setting the scope for enlarging the scope 
of student government, an<l that by a 
show of initiative will encourage the 
faculty to provide for greater student 
participation in the decisions which make 
college policy.

A Gain For Student Government 

III tile fall of I'^.il tlie student liody almost iiiiaiiinioii.sly approved 
a new eonstitiition for student K<>veninieiil at NVilliimis College. That 
new form of government represented a distinct iinprovenieiit and worked 
efficiently for several years. Hut today, less than ten years after, what 
was a(le(|iialc is adeiiiiate no longer. During' llie past two years the 
.shortconiings of the riidergTadiiate Council have lieeoine iiicrea.singly 
more apparent. 

Today tlie riidergradiiate Coiiiicil projioses a new constitution pro- 
viding for a seiiaratioii of ])owers between an Inli-r-fraternity Council 
and an K.xecutive Coniniittee. That constitution, jirinted in today's 
i.s,sne. is a tlocunient which we iiiuiiialifiedly aiiiirove, for more aggressive 
leadership, with no relaxation of student reiiresenlation, will be made 
liossiiile under its framework of law. President Kobert B. Kittrcdge 
and liis siiecial committee deserve tlie warm of every student anx- 
ious for self-government. 

There are, however, two proimsals which the new constitution fails 
to make. These omissions can be remedied soon after the new govern- 
iiieiil .starts to function. 

First, the section reading, "'Matters of undergradiiate discipline 
which are not liaii<lled by the college Committee on Dis(i])liiie or whicli 
are refcricd to the Executive Committee by the Dean shall be dealt with 
by the Kxeciitive Committee," is a hall-way measure. The ability to 
enforce legislation is essential to effective undcrgradiiale government, 
and for this reason we are convinced that the ]>owcrs of llie Committee 
on Disciiiline, now in the hands of four faculty members and two iiiider- 
gradiiates. iiiiisl lie given to the Executive Committee. This is a revolu- 
tionary iirojiosal, 1ml nevertheless an ah.soliitely necessary step which 
undergraduate .self-governnient must soon take. Such action can better 
be taken under the new constitution than before its ado|)lioii. 

Sectmd, some provision must be made for undergraduate represen- 
tation at faculty ineeliiigs. Student-faculty interdependence .should he 
recognized; an iinderstandiiig of the student viewjioint is as necessary 
to faculty legislation as realization of faculty aims is to student morale. 
The Conimittcc on the State of the (/illege in a World at War, composed 
of five faculty inenibers and as many iinilergradiiates, has already proved 
that the jioolingof ideas between faculty and students can pay tremendous 
dividends in terms of more effective deterniinatioii of policy and of strong- 
er implementing of proi>osals. In tlic near future, the new Executive 
('ommittee must evolve a student governineiital system in which it has 
definite power lo legislate with the iiieiilly on mutual problems. 

.V college meeting next Thursday in Chapin Hall will decide the 
future of sliideiit govcnimciit at Williams College. Each of us has a 
double responsibility on that tlate: to he present, to vote yes.

Perry Finds V-1 Qualifying Exams Emphasize 
Liberal Arts Courses As Well As Technical 

The Joint Army- Navy- Mariiiu Corps- 
Coast Ciuinl Collegiate I'rocurement Com- 
mittee this week released to the Dean's 
( )llice a sample of the second year Naval 
(|iialification examination for the V'-l 
reserve. William C",. I'erry, assistant to 
ihe dean, commented on the test, "Judging 
purely from the sample given, I would say 
ihat, although basic mathematics and 
physics are recpiired, the average student 
would cpialify himself for the examination 
as well or hotter through the lil)eral arts 
courses as he would thronnh technical 

Tlirce Purl Kxain 

The sample examination was divided 
into three parts, — general verbal aptitude 
and training, mathematics, and physics. 
In the first part the students are asked to 
deal with distinctions between words and 
to arrange words in regard to their simi- 
larity and dissimilarity, much as in the 
f.ishion of the scholastic aptitude tests. 
In one sample, a set of four words is given 
with the object to match a pair of op- 
pj)sites. They include such words as 
"incipient," "amenable," "spurious," and 

KiiiphiiKi/.L- Liheriil .\rls 

"The standards of qualifications as laid 
down by the Navy in this particular 
sample emphasize a more ad\'anced stan- 
(hird of liberal education than of a teelinl- 
cal," Mr. I'erry asserted. "The work that 
recruits are going to do is technical, and 
their training will be technical, but in the 
general classifications, the Navy appears 
to want recruits to bo able to sec \erb;d 
and liberal arts distinctions, as well as 
demanding that they handle figures." 

Mr. I'erry cpialified his statement I y 
adding, "These remarks, based on a 
sample of the second year \'-l (pialifying 
examination, in no way modify the Navy's 
need for advanced technical men. If the 
samples indicate the level of difficulty and 
not merely the form," Mr. Perry went on, 
"the general wrbal aptitude test appears 
to be the hardest. 

I'liinlH l<> Naval .\<'a<li-my 
"The j.revalent restlessness of college 
students is due in part to the lack of 

|)erception of the applicability of a liberal 
arts eilucation to their |)ersonal situation 
and to the world situation. The long 
range value of a liberal arts education is 
the same as it always was, but the (|uestion 
of innnediatc |)racticability looms abnor- 
mally large because of the war. The test 
should be a reassurance to the students of 
the immediate value of a liberal arts 
education," said he. 

Mr, I'erry noted that at the Naval 
.•\cadeniy at Annapolis, which is a spi-cial- 
ized college, they svill maintain the same 
standards of English, history, and other 
liberal arts subjects. Kighty |)er cent of 
the oHicers in the Army are college grad- 
uates, yet for the whole army officers 
and enlisted men — the figure is bm twelve 
|)er cent, Mr. I'erry averred.

Cut off last month from a large portion 
of radio listeners in the freshman (|uad li\' 
the college's unexpected removal of com- 
munication wires, WMS may once again 
be heard in Williams and Sage Hall-., 
John 0. Copley '44, technical manager nf 
the campus radio station, ann(iuncr(l 
yesterday. He said that the college 
decided to cut down the wires early in 
August, w'hen they were considered both I 
iin ighlh' and dangerous. 

Will Rewire Quad 
'I'iaii^ are now under wa\'," the lecl)- 
ni al nian.iijef went on, "bt let the fierli- 
nien lune in on WMS sometime in the 
ver\ mar future. Ever since last month, 
when nur coniniunicaticin wires between 
Hopkins Hall and Sigma Phi were torn 
down, wr have not been heard in the quad 
at all well, liecausi- the freshmen com- 
prise a good bit of WMS's radio audience, 
sometliing had to be tlone si)eedil\." 

C(jple\' also stated that although ;i few 
of the fraternities had cinnplained that 
they were unahle to hear WMS, the sta- 
tion was unable to remed\" the situation 
at the present lime. The New England 
Ti'lephcine and Telegraph Company, from 
whom WMS has rented wires to several of 
the fraternities, would not be able to 
install an\- more comnumication line^ 
for the station until the war is over 
Wire, which has becnnie essential to the 
war effort, can be installed only for the 
most vital needs. 

New Members Elected 
WMS has now heijun an hour program 
of classical nuisie, and hasalscj inaugural 
a Gilbert and .Sulli\an show, in response 
to a survey that was recenth- made of all 
the fraternities. This survey revealed a 
large demand for more classiciil music, 
and also for light opera. 

Robert W . Ilinman '43, president of 
WMS, declared last night that, as a result 
of a live-week competition, the following

In last week's \"ote, students were asked ' 
to give reasons to back np their decisions. 

From the 75' , wliot'a\<»redal>filitif>ii. 
llie following reasons were preseiilecl:- 

"I think that ihe whole si)irit of chapel 
is ruined by forcing a person to go." 

"Religion has never been successfully 
imposed on anyone. Compulsion itself, 
helitiles the spirit in which religion must 
he accepted to be of \'aUie." 

"Hasicidly religion should lie a m.itter of 
\'olition ratherthan compulsion." 

"Compulsion deadens ihe beauty of 
religion. The only beaut\ in the service 
is the choir." 

"Chapel now hasn't cwn .i suggestion 
of religious atmosphere students are 
studying, sleeping " 

"Religion is a thing that comes from 
within, ^'on absolutely can't force reli- 
gion into anyone." 

"Makes for hypocrisy and antipathy to 

"Because forcing a man into a chapel 
causes him to react negatively, hence he 
goes to sleep. He would get far more good 
from drifting willingly into chapel a few 
times a year than when forced c\'ery 

"Religion is a i)crsonal matter and not 
one that needs to be aired in 'mass' dis- 

'I'he following arc Boiiie llial were 
proposed in defciiHC ol' compulsory 
ehnpel : 

"What the world needs today is to 
become conscious of God again. ' 

"Nice old tradition." 

"It's an essential part of a Williams 
liberal arts education. Also it gets the 
college together once a week." 

"Chapel should be considered an 
essential part of every man's educ.ition as 
much as any required course. It is worth 
while to force religion on certain students 
in order to get them to think about the 
church and religion." 

"A swell place to sober up after an 
av'crage weekend of dis-regimenlation."

No Serious Injuries 

Caldwell has been forlunate this season 
in not losing any of his men because of 
serious jiractice injuries. Scholastic cas- 
ualties have made deeper iinoads into hi^ 
squad as a back, guard, and tackle have 
been tnrced to leave practice until after 
mid-\'ear examinatit)ns. 

The tesam that Captain Bill Courier 
will lead to ne.\l Saturday's kick-ofT is now 
virtually decided. Since the tradilional 
Cahlwell policy is fre<iuent substitution, 
it is likely that all of the men on llu' lirsl 
two teams will see ser\'ice. 

Captain C(mrter will probabK' be a 
ixly nunute phner al his keystone 
position in the center of the line. .No 
other candidates for this position ha\e 
sIkjwu iIk' abilit\' to replace Courier for 
an\' length of lime. 

Renzi at Guard 

The liiu'.. irrepressible and consistent 
spark plug, Ralph Renzi, has clinched one 
of the guard [lositions Hanking Courtei . 
Fighting it nut for the other guard posi- 
tions are Kd Spaelh and John Wakeman. 

John Si legman, a guard in the 1941 
season, has capably taken over a starting 
tackle slot, but will have to keep stepping 
to stay ahead of versatile Bob Gardner, 
who is working out as both a center and 
tackle. The oilier tackle position is a toss 
up between Art \ cirys and Coby Wilson. 

\'cteran Bob Wallace has been making 
spectacularK' elTective pass catches and is 
a sure bet to lake the brunt at the right 
end of the line. Carl Gruber an<l Dick 
Means are neck and neck for the left end 
position, but hard hitting Andy Knox is 
not far behind. 

Experience is the keynote of the first 
backlield. SpeedsKTS Schmidt and Hayes 
will do the bulk of the end-around and 
broken field running. Bill Orr looks like 
a sure thing for power plays through the 
line, and Tom Powers does some \'aluable 
blocking as well as calling the plays.

'Better Organization, Greater Leadership, 
Firmer Resolve/ Lerner Asks of Williams 

"Voii don't chaiiKc from things-;is-iisu;il 
to things-in-wartime iueri'K- l)y doing 
thint's-as-tisual fifty |jercent more." Thus 
Professor Max I.frni'r attacked in a speech 
over VVMS last Thiirsilay night Williams' 
p.irt in the national war effort. 

Asking what it is "that constitutes the 
health anil strength of nations." Mr. 
I.t-rner called for "better organization, 
greater leadership, firmer moral resolve" 
as \ilal both to country and to college. 

KforKUiiizf l*ri-»«iit 'ruleiils' 

Students throughout the college, he 
asserted, "have an uneasy sense that there 
are a lot of things they should be si)ending 
their time on which will fit them much 
more adequately for their jobs during the 
next five years than they are now being 
fitted." Terming the question not one of 
adding or dropping courses, Mr. l.erner 
called It rather a matter "of planning and 
reorganizing the material and talents that 
we have already among students and 

In respect to its need for leadership a 
college is not far dilferent from any other 
institution in the nation, he asserted, de- 
manding "Look into your hearts and ask 
yourselves — those of you who are in 
positions of leadership among the student 
hody -whether you are exerting that 

('.ui\» for Fighting Faith 

"There can be no democratic health in 
the whole political body," Mr. l.erner 
went on, "if we give only lip service to 
democracy in the colleges, if we do not 

in the world—then I don't think we can 
make a fighting faith out of it." 

More than the inculcation of knowledge 
Mr. l.erner asserted to be the duty of 
education; "it must also be the task of 
educati<ni to instill the belief without 
which all bullets are blind and all know- 
ledge aimless.' 

Closing the speech with an exhortation 
to Williams men to think constructively 
on the war, .Mr. l.erner s;iid,"This is the 
time for toughness, a time of preparation, 
a time for the quiet core of conviction 
which alone can win wars because it alone

In a memorandum to the members iil

President Richard A. Newhall called 
attention to the following statement 
issued by the American Council on Eiduca-

War Dep't Bulletin 

The War Department, in its recent 
iiliicial bulletin to the college concerning 
the AERC, states the following: 

"When enlisted reservists are called to 
active duty, the Army will determine what 
further training is reciuired to qualify 
these men for militar\ duty. For this 
purpose the War Department will adopt 
such methods and utilize such facilities 
of their own or of the colleges as will best 
meet the current military requirements. 

"In general, training after call to active 
duty will be highly specialized to qualify 
the men for specific military duty. Such 
training will be given only as reciuired by 
military necessity and will be concentrated 
into the minimum time period. Plans 
under consideratiini coiuemplate an R.O. 
'I'.C. training program modified to con- 
form to this policy." 

The President's Ofiice also released the 
information that the Na\y and Marine 
Corps Reserves have not set up definite 
(luotas of enlistment for individual col- 
leges. Every possible candidate will be 
inducted if he demonstrates officer ability 
and can fulfill the standard requirements.

Give College Credit 

Both courses are on a more elementary 
basis than that provided by Physics 5-6 
and 11-12. These two standard subjects 
of the Physics department can lead 
directly to a second lieutenant's com- 
mission in the Signal Corps, when accom- 
panied by a college degree. Both the new 
courses in Electricity and Electronics 
would receive college credit for two present 
subjects, although nut eligible for credit 
in the physics major. Only Electricity 
5b, however, could be elected alone. 

Candidates for these possible courses, 
who are in the Eidisled Reserves, and who 
will be twenty \ears old before the end of 
the next semester, will be given first pre- 
ference. Students will further be selected 
on the basis of previous grades, while 
others will be admitted if room permits. 

All those interested in these two sub- 
jects, but who are unable to be present at 
the meeting on Monday evening, should 
visit the Physics department sometime 

Three Teams Advance 
To Debate Semi-Finals 

Varsity, Freshman Team 
Busy in Coming Week 

Rolx'rt L. \'iner '43 and Milton Prigoff 
'44, upholding the negative of the subject 
"Kesolved; That compulsory chapel 
should be abolished," upset the second- 
seeded team of Everett F. Fink and Peter 
D. Silverstone '45 Thursda)' afternoon, 
becoming the third semi-finalists in the 
Adelphic Union's All-College debate tour- 
nament. The third negative team to win 
out of four debates held so far, \iner and 
Prigoff were successful in defending the 
institution which is at present under 

Dickinson R. Debevoise and Wallace 
B. Thompson, Jr. '46 will face a team from 
Middlebury at 3:30 Friday afternoon, 
as the Freshman Debate Council opens its 
season. They will negate the proposition 
that "Congress shall conscript all labor 
{men and women) foi- war work." 

Sales Tax Delmle 

The Lions Club noon luncheon Thurs- 
day, Septenber 24 will be the scene of a 
"model" debate between four Adelphic 
Union members. Johnathan 0. Birnic 
'43 and Paul L. Kohnstanun '44, tourney 
semi-finalists, will uphold the affirmative 
of the topic, "Resolved: That Congress 
shall impose a retail sales tax for the 
duration", agaitist Fink and Silverstone, 
at the Williams Inn. 

The keynote lor the All-College tourney 
thus far was set Tuesday afternoon when 
Harvey C. Jewett '44 and Leston L. 
Havens '45 dele.iteil the freshman affirma- 
tive team of Roger Ernst and Edward 
Rosen in a first-round contest. The 
quarter-finals got under way Tuesday 
evening when llirnieanci Kohnstamm out- 
pointed aflirni.itivcs Fri'deric -S. Nathan

The top-seideel team of Thomas S. 
Walsh and Fr.uik M. Wozencraft '44 were 
pressed to defeat freshmen Ralph .\. 
Caves and Robert K. Lesser Wednesday 
evening, but they succeeded as the only 
affirmative team to win thus far. 

After Jewett and Havens meet Richard 
C. Acker and James V. Pricchard '44 
Monday afternooji, the (luarter-final round 
will be completed, and the chapel topic 
will be abandoned for a subject of national 
importance, possibly economic ])lanning, 
it was announced by Assistant f^rof. 
Robert 1". ^'oung, debating coach and 
Adelphic Union adviser.

from Saturday, November 7 to Friday, so 
the squad can be in Williamstown for the 
Wesleyan football game. 

Over thirty-five freshmen have been 
working out with Bob Muir since Labor 
Day. More than half of the yearlings 
have had soccer experience, but so far 
Muir has not picked any individual stand- 
outs. Two evenly matched teams have 
been formed and will play each other once 
each week. A schedule change is also in 
the offing for the freshmen as attempts are 
being made to shift the R. P. I. game from 
October 3 to a later date.

Outline for Flying 
Program Revealed 

Training of Civilian Pilots 
Proposed Here, Pending 
College Authorization 

Tentative plans for a governuH'tit- 
spunsored Civilian Pilot Training program 
'CI'T) at Williams were announced this 
week by Charles C".. Abbott '4,?, president 
1)1 the Flying Club. Pending the appro- 
bation of college authorities, the project 
ftill offer a limited number of Williams 
students and approxim.itcly thirty govern- 
ment appointees the chance to receive 
olficial flight training for the armed 

Prnliabic Trainiiifi Field 

In the event that college sponsorship is 
obtained, a training field will be estab- 
lished on a farm in South Williamstown 
I" longing to Donald Cole, which was used 
by the Flying Club before Pearl Harbor. 
•'\n independe'it flight operator, Newton 
Keid, head of the Reid School of Aero- 
iiiutics, whose Poughkeepsic air base was 
recently taken over by the Army, has 
olTered to remodel the field to government 
specifications at his own expense and then 
obtain a franchise from the government to 
operate the school. 

Confirmation by the college of this 
program implies that Williams will provide 
facilities for the ground courses, supplying 
essentials like navigation and meteorology 
teachers, pistol-shooting instruction, mili- 
tary discipline, and room and board, 
"nder this plan the government will 
reimburse the college for housing and 
teaching expenses. 

"Help War Effort" 

"A CPT program would help to offset 
the inevitable enrollment slump," said 
Abbott, "as well as provide an excellent 
chance for the college to help the war

will be a long-run set-up that will benefit

go\ernment proponed by the present 
Undergraduate Council. The proposal 
embodies the formation of an Inter-

Ccjuiniittee which will hold its lirst meeting 
November 10. 

Major Objection 

At the meeting ("■. I'aid lleppes '43 
voiced the only major objection to the 
constitution. He favorcil a change in the 
method of electing the cl^i^s representatives 
to the Executive Committee. Instead of 
class presidents automatically becoming 
members of the comniittee, he proposed 
that special class ( lielinns be held. Al- 
though Heppes r<(eived much applause, 
the overwhelming majority of those pre- 
sent favored the constitution as read.

composed of thi' si\teen house presidents

100 Student-Farmers 
Work 1200 Aggregate 
Hours, Gain 40% Raise 

After two months of pitching, raking, 
picking, and digging, the Williams Student- 
Farmer Project sat back and looked at 
itself this week to find that its contribution 
towards the alleviation of the local labor 
shortage had totaled over 1200 aggregate 
hours of work. Over a hundred different 
students had signed to labor on the farms 
of twenty-one nearby farmers, and their 
performance had been good enough to 
raise some wage offers from thirty to fifty 
cents an hour. 

The dark cloud arising from the coinci- 
dental arrival of early fall sports and late 
summer crops was dispelled this week by 
a fifty percent increase in the volunteer 
registration resulting from a daily plea 
broadcast by Albert V. Osterhout '06, 
coordinator for the plan. The call even 
lured an alumnus, Theodore A. Fowler '42, 
returned for a vacation, and sent him into 
the local fields for a week's work. 

The work has been varied anil interest- 
ing: the farmhands have built and filled 
silos; dug potatoes, ditches, and founda- 
tions for chickenhouses; and gathered in 
hay, grain, apples, tomatoes, and the 
winter's firewood. In some cases, they 
have also handled sheep and cattle.

New Math Course Will 
Be Taught Next Term 

Preparation for Armed 
Forces to Be Stressed 

In compliance with the suggestion of 
military authorities, the Mathematics 
department has announced a new course 
which will offer to students not planning 
to go int(j higher math the practical 
funtlamentals necessary in many special- 
ized branches of the armed forces. 

The new course has been designated 
Math 2b, and will be presentetl as an 
alti'rnaiive to Math la to those enrolled in 
the elementar\' math course. It will 
emphasize ehnnents of solid geometry and 
spherical trigonometry that will qualify 
students for induction into thi-army, nav\'. 
navy reserves and in either of the air 
forces as bombardier, navigator, or pilot. 

Receive College Credit 

Math la, the original second semester 
of the l-la secpience, concerns analytical 
geometry and elementary calculus and is 
a prerequisite to induction into the air 
forces as a photographer. lioth cinirses 
will receive college credit but Math 2b 
will not be eli;^ible for credit in a math 

This action in instituting a new course 
was taken by the department upon 
recommendation by a ecmference of Mill- 
western educational leaders anil military 
authorities at Northwestern l'niversit\' 
late in June. Suggestions to the mathe- 
matics departments ol all colleges and 
universities, with a view toward prepar- 
atiim for induction of stu<lents into the 
armed forces, were formulated and dis-

Berkshire's Zoot Soot Burglar Blames Beer; 
No Woman in Case of the Pilfered Plumage 

by Paul Detels '44 

Climaxing a three-state, twelve-hour 
search, local police broke the peaceful 
repose of Howard Bacon as he la\ under 
a banyan tree in the laconic Woods earlier 
this week, clad in borrowed plumage, 
stolen from the too-trusting occupants of 
Berkshire Hall. 

The bloodhounds were set in motion b\' 
John Sharpe '44, whose racy green sport 
jacket Bacon had singled out from the 
rest of his booty as the best to wear. 
Sharpe had returned from a Mimday 
morning seminar to find the stranger 
preening himself in his best, and had re- 
ceived the explanation that Bacon was an 
old drinking buddy of Sharpe's room- 
mate. He professed to have a wife and 
three kids in Texas. 

Levy in the Nude 

Sharpe left the roimi to find his room- 
mate and ctmfirm the story, leaving 
Herbert Levy '44 to prevent any retreat on 
Bacon's part. Unfortunately, Levy was 
au naturel, having just concluded a brisk 
morning shower, and when the stranger 
voiced his yearning for a cup of coffee and 

got up to leave, Levy found himself 
powerless to follow. He hurried to his 
room, only to find that the cupboard was 
bare. Bacon had effect ualK cut off 
pursuit. Darting from the building, he 
hopped on a bicycle, and scorched off in 
Sharpe's best, clutching to his bosom the 
finery of half-a-dozen Berkshire occupants. 
ISO Mile Drag-net 

Called into the case, the police threw 
out a 150-milc drag-net. Thex traced the 
trail to where he reclined in the leafy 
shade, sleeping heavily. Arraigned liefore 
Judge Israel Ruby later in the week. 
Bacon pleaded intoxication, and was held 
for trial next Monday morning in the 
Williamstown court. Evidence has been 
brought forward to support his contention 
that he had over-indulged in yeast - 
gathering the night before, and investi- 
gation revealed that he had spent the 
night in the bed of John Duflield ex-'44, 
who left college recently. 

To date, no amount of interrogation by 
official and un-official ferrets had yet 
uncovered a woman in the case.

Purple Knights to Play 
At First Football Dance 

Glee Club Will Sponsor 
Affair Saturday Night 

Lasell Gymnasiunt will be the scene of 
the first social attraction of the fall seasmi 
tomorrow night whim the Purple Knights 
entertain at the Miihllebury Football 
Dance from 9:00 until midnight. 

The dance is to be run by the Glee Club, 
which has contracted the services of the 
college dance band for the night. The 
affair marks the seconil appearance of the 
Purple Knights this year, the orchestra 
having played in conjunction with the 
Baden Lewis Grange Band for the 
Allied Relief benelil last month. 

Robert B. Kittredge '4,^, manager and 
lead trumpeter, disclosed that the Middle- 
bury affair was contracted suddenly last 
week, and that consequently the Purple 
Knights have not had a great deal of time 
in which to practice new arrangements. 
A large number of new jiieces were added 
to the band repertoire before the Allied 
Relief dance, however, and the Knights 
should find no trouble in supplying music 
in quantity. 

Bertram A. Tunnell, Jr. '43, in charge of 
arrangements for the dance, stated that 
the dance will be held in the smaller 
gymnasium, and that colored lights will 
supply the decorations. The price of 
admission, which is set at S.55 a person, 
is regarded as low enough to insure a large 
turnout. A disappointment to many will 
be the absence of the Octet, which is saving 
its wares for the next public opportunity 
to sing.

Thoughts On Next Semester 

Witli les.s tliaii u week left before mid-year exams, most undergrad- 
uates will be hard pre.s.sed tf) spare enough time to attend the football 
rally touiglit, the Middh-bury game tomorrow, and to entertani the young 
fighters who represent our allies here this weekend. Consequently 
several projxjsals designed to integrate the college more closely with the 
war effort must wait until the beginning of next semester before they can 
be put into etlVet. Four of these ideas we will foreshadow now, for these 
proposals merit consideration by all undergrailuales. 

First, Williams needs a .scrap metal campaign at the earliest possible 
moment. .Vlreudy a group of freshmen arc evolving a plan whereby the 
college can coiilribule a maximum of its unneeded metal to the nation. 
The Gargoyle i'eiice, ornate grill work on the geology lab, old furnaces 
and pipes in college and fraternity buildings, metal fence posts to preserve 
grass, unused boot serajjcrs on local ))orches, and broken-down radiators 
arc metal objects which could serve more usefully in the form of bullets, 
rifles, or tanks. The sera]) metal drive will begin the week of October 19. 

Second, undergraduates are now planning to conduct a campus- 
wide war-bond pledge camiiaign early next semester. This drive will be 
cimdiictcd through the .social units: its goal is to secure from each of us a 
pledge to buy at least a quarter's worth of war .stanii)s regularly each week 
at the "Willianistown Post Office. .V few houses have already signed all 
their members to i)urchase .stam])s, and after the second .semester starts, 
every student will have a similar opportunity. 

Third, next semester we must face the problem of giving Physical 
training a still more important i)lac(' in the curriculum. At present 
.schednliiig of P. T. cla.sses comes after .scheduling of all other courses; 
unilergradiiates do not get three hours' exercise each week, since at least 
one hour of that time is .spent in changing clothes and taking showers. 
It has been suggested from several (|uarters that the college modify its 
rules to require that the three lower cla.sses take four courses a year, and 
seniors take three, while at the same time each undergraduate take a full 
hour's five days per week (this means an hour-and-a-half P. T. 
period each day). While we like the propo.sed increase in Physical Train- 
ing, we are fearful lest such a plan undermine Williams' .scholastic stand- 
ing. Con.setiuently we offer this suggestion to faculty and students mere- 
ly as a starting point in their efforts to develop a curriculum which jilaccs 
greater emphasis on physical fitness than ours does today. 

Fourth, during the coming .semester, student-faculty coo])eration 
must continue to improve. Undergraduates can contribute to this im- 
provement by making certain that they elect competent and aggressive 
leaders for the new student governmcnl adopted yesterday. Further, 
they can fulfill their re.s])on.sibilities in enl'orcing driving regulations (as 
they are now doing .so effectively) to prove undergraduates deserve a 
greater share in evolving and administering college laws. Lasitly, various 
undergradnalc groups can take the initiative in helping Williams con- 
tribute to the war effort, just as the 1'. ('. did recently in voting for a very 
inexpi-nsiiv weekend next November ()-!i. The faculty, on the other hanil, 
can continiie its present efforts to make its curricular offerings extremely 
pertinent to a world at war. 'i'he math and physics departments, for 
example, have again adopted new which will help develo]) in- 
telligent fighting men. American History can give greater emphasis to 
•Japanese-American relations; the Iviglish De])artmcnt can draw from 
English translations of great Russian masterpieces (for example, selec-

— these are examples of course changes that will not be an acknowledge- 
ment that liberal arts has failed, hut which will as.sert liberal arts' ability 
to ilraw from its vast resources the material most pertinent to .\merica 
of 1942. Of course the faculty itself can best decide what specific course 
modifications should be made. We make this suggestion not as a war 
expedient, but because we feel continual change and progress is essential 
to the advancement of our lilieial arts tradition. 

All of us realize next .semester that the Williams curriculuin and 
way of life should not be completely changed because we are at war. Hy 
our .suggestions on next semester's activities we do not to give the 
erroneous impression that Williams' values do not hold good in wartime. 
The war has cry.stallizcd the weaknesses and illuminated the strengths of 
Williams ('ollcge. Our efforts today to make sen.sible improvements in 
our curriculum, our activities, and our outlook on life alone can insure the 
survival of all that is strong at Williams.

IJndoLilrtedly, yes. Ch.irtes D. Make-

ing to state the number of studivits hcol's- 
sary to keep the college open, affirmed that 
there is no danger of the colle;.;e closing 
after February or, probably, ai any later 
date. It is significant thr.t tin- iru^tees

HejMirts that geology would not he included 
on lite college curriculum after l',hniarywere 
denied today by Prof. Elwyii I.. Perry. 
"There may have to be some cmiailment in 
geology courses due to the diffiridty of ob- 
taining a staff," he said, "but geology will 
definitely be included in the college cur- 
riculum next year." Curtailment of courses, 
moreover, is not definite, and it may be 
found that no such step is necessary. 

Rumors circulating to the clTect that the 
facuUy is considering plaeing the entire 
student body on no-cuts are likewise un- 
founded. On Septendjer 10 1 )ean 1 lalfdan 
('■rriiersen stated that no such action has 
been contemplated by the f.iculty. 

.Some undergraduates have affirmed thjt 
at least 130 men plan to leav college after 
mid-year examinations. There is nothing 
to indicate that such is the case. No one 
is certain as to the number tearing college 
in October. Certainly, however, the college 
has held its own in enrollment to date.

Letter to the Editor 

To the Editors of The Record: 

This letter probably amounts to the 
conventional "too little, too late." What 
it has to say, however, may still carry 
some weight. In last night's meeting in 
Chapin Hall to ratify the newly drafted 
constitution, proceedings were carried on 
in a distinctly Hitler-like atmosphere 
which precipitated little constructive dis- 
cussion. This was probably unintentional 

Contrary to sonic opinion, students will 
be iK'rniitted to continue with Physics 2 
if they have passed Physics 1 with a D- 
minus or better. According to Prof. 
Franzo H. Crawford, however, a grade of 
C or better will be required for students 
planning to enter acl\'anci'd courses in 
I'ebruary. Exceptional cases with a D- 
plus or D may be perniittecl to continue 
ihem depending on ;he number applying 
for such courses. 

Members of the Army Enlisted Reserve 
will not be called excpl at the end of th'i 
semester in which the reservist reaches his 
twentieth birthday. .Secretary of War 
Stimson's statement should not be mis- 
understood to the effect that college reserves 
will be called as soon «,s they reach twenty.

on the part of the leaders involved. 
Nevertheless this atmosphere did exist. 
As a result, the constitution was ratified 
as originally drafted ami as such, included 
one serious defect. 

The Executive Conuiiittee of seven is 
supposed to be a hard-headed council 
capable of handling C(illei;e-wide problems 
of vital interests to students, and is sup- 
posed to attract the respect of faculty and 
trustees. How can the committee do this 
when it has an elective system which will 
not get the most desirable men for the 
job? Four of the men on the Executive 
Committee are to be the presidents of the 
four classes. In most cases in the past, 
these men have been the "nice guys" or 
the athletes who may be perfectly amiable 
chaps, but who do not possess the neces- 
sary mental capacity or sense of responsi- 
bility to carry im such a supposedly im- 
portant job. There is a better way of 
choosing the true campus leaders: 

Let the menit)ers of each class in each 
house elect their representative; then let 
each class as a whole nominate four of 
these sixteen; after which each class as a 
whole will elect one of these four. This 
system is predicted on the belief that each 
man knows the truly competent leaders in 
his house better than any outsider, and 
that by so electing these men, the Execu- 
tive Committee is guaranteed of at least 
a plurality of real leaders. 

If enough .sentiment is attracted in 
support of this plan, something can be 
done to amend in this fashion what is 
otherwise a thoroughly sound and pro- 
gressive document.

Russian Novelist Tells Impressions of Life 
At Williams; Completes Novel on War Here 

by CU8HING StROUT '45 

"Nothing in Europe can possibly 
iiifasurc up to the American schooling 
>ystom," commented Mrs. Bozidar Alek- 
>aiider, Russian refugee and novelist, who 
lias been completing her latest novel while 
living at the Williams Inn this summer 
ttith her \'ugi)slav husband and "adopted" 
I'reiich refugee child. "In America," 
she said with enthusiasm, "whole towns 
:,pring up around the colleges which are 
ihe real nerve centers of the community 
lite, as at Williams." 

Mrs. Aleksander, who writes under her 
maiden name of Irina Kunina, expressed 
lur impression of American education as 
"perfectly amazing." Since colleges be- 
(iinie community centers, the novelist 
Ifels that the emphasis is placed on the 
lising generation, imparting a very pro- 
gressive tone to American life. She said 
ihat she and her husband had taken great 
interest in observing Williams, its library, 
faculty, and classes, as an example of this 

First Impression 

One of the first things about America 
that impressed her was the "complete 
ali.sorption of Russian immigrants by the 
Inited States." "In Yugoslavia where 
the language spoken is very similar to 
Russian the Russian still maintains his 
independent characteristics." Mrs. Alek- 
sander pointed out, "anywhere in h^urope 
a Russian is always Russian, but when he 
ccjnies to America — presto! — he's an 
American in thought, feeling, and iiiur- 

Both the novelist and her husband who 
arrived in America simultaneously with 
the signing of the German-Yugoslav pari 
in late -March of 1941, expressed interest 
in the question of political feeling among 
the students. In Europe, Mr. Alek- 

sander pointed out, the students take 
political theories very seriously and 
organize to defend their beliefs. 
Healthy Situation 

His wife suggested that here the empha- 
sis is placed on sports rather than politics, 
and they both agreed it was a "far more 
healthy" situation. In Europe, Mr. Alek- 
sander said, universities too often became 
leftist centers of resistance. 

Questioned about her attitude toward 
the current internaticmal crisis, pretty, 
red-haired Mrs. Aleksander said that she 
saw the problem in an over-simplilied, 
almost primitive way. "To light fascism 
and defeat Hitler are the dominant forces 
in my ideology, and I cannot at present 
see the problem in anything but this 
primitive light," she claimed. 

Purpose Expressed 

Her experiences in fi^urope throughout 
Hitler's rise to power could not make her 
anything but single-minded in deter- 
mination to win, she explained. As a 
writer she expressed this purpose through 
the hero of her new book. One Man's Land. 

Inspired by the human heroism and 
tragedy at the fall of Uunquercpic, ihe 
novelist moved to an isolated hou^c in 
Switzerland where she could not hear the 
cannons roar, and began to virhvOne Man's 
Land. The story, told against a detailed 
historical background, portrays the drama 
of the small nations and individuals 
caught in the European maelstrom. 

Beginning with September 3, 19,S9, the 
novelist shows how the former "no man's 
land" between France and German), in 
fact all Europe, has become one niaii'n 
land — the property of Adolf HilUi. 
Written in Russian the book will probabh 
lie translated and published in New York

plained. "If the i)lan is accepted by 
October 1, it can be in operation by the 
first of the year," 

A similar proposal was suggested in 
1940, but it was turned down because at 
that time the college was expected to 
underwrite the cost of equipment and 
field-construction. The present plan does 
not entail any of thes.' objections, Abbott 
pointed out, since Reid has offered to 
provide six planes and six instructors, as 
well as assuming responsibilities for the 
field, which is now being surveyed. 

Although no definite statement has been 
made, Abbott was of the opinion that the 
i^chool W'Ould be a .Navy project catering 
to members or potential members of the

Dr. Albert B. Fruiiklin, 3rd. assistant

(Conthmed from page 2) 

participate in six sp:)rts. Boxing, wrestl- 
ing, swimming, basketball, apparatus 
work, and sipiash will be required for all 
members of V. T. clnssos. 

A rumor thai the college definilely plans 
on granting 'war diplomas' is completely 
unfounded. According to the last official 
statement, Williams will not grant such 
diplomas to students leaving college to 
enter various branches of Ihe armed service. 
President James P. Baxter, III, stated on 
April 12, 1941, that while he admired the 
patriotism and couraf'- of Williams under- 
graduates entering th- Army or Navy, he 
did not know of a si:igte university where 
"such commendable anion" could lake the 
place of a full year of academic work. 
In 1918 Williams awarded 'war diplomas' 
to many seniors called in May of that year, 
but none were granted to students whose 
standing was dubious or to those called to 
service al the end of their junior year. 

There is no factual basis for a common 
belief that Pri'.sidnit James P. Baxter, III, 
will not return in October. As far as any 
authorit;'.ti\e source knows, President 
Baxter will return to assume his duties on 
a five-da\-wei'kl>' basis the second week of 
next month. 

The most fastidious stu- 
dents are pleased with our 
expert laundering of 
shirts. Our quality ser- 
vice has won us many a 
friend among Williams 
College Students. 



Assist. Prof. Samuel A. Matthews, who 
advises on Ihe Army Enlisted Reserve 
Corps, estimates from a poll taken of the 
student body that only eighty undergraduates 
liave no plans for entering some branch of 
the armed forces. This refutes the report 
that Williams men "don'i know where 
they're going in this war."

Noble Calls For Rebirth of Discipline, Faith 
For Improvement of Undergraduate Morale 

"I have to say that while the morale has 
been good, it has not been good enough — 
not good enough to win the war", stated 
the Rev. A. Grant Noble, college chaplain, 
in an informal radio talk over station 
VVMS last Thursday night. 

Dr. Noble, first in a series of speakers to 
address the college connnunity on matters 

them with his heart as well as his mind, 
when he lives by them and dies for them." 
The lighting faith that the speaker 
called for entails, he stated, "the belief that 
people are made in the inuige of God, that 
we are all e<|ual before Him and among 
ourselves; that man has an immortal soul; 
that it is this (|uality wdiich makes him 

of impoi tance to Williams at War, praised [ inlinitely more valuable than anything else 

the sacrifices that undergraduates and 
faculty have made in the war effort, anil 
called for a rebirth of inspiration, disci- 
pline, and fighting faith for the con- 
tinuance of the winning spirit. 

"Morale Good Under Conditions" 

Answering critics of college morale 
Dr. Noble pointed out that "the morale 
has been good — ver>- good under the 
conditions". In citing the cases of 
institutions that have not adopted the 
accelerated summer schedule, he asserted 
that almost without exception representa- 
tives ol those colleges have expressed the 
wish that they had followed the current 
trend and had ordained year-round 
scholastic sessions. 

Individual Discipline Needed 

"What we are deficient in is a real si'use 
of what discipline means. Some weekends 
during this summer have all too clearly 
shown this. We need — all of us— a great 
deal more steel in us." Dr. .Noble called 
for the development of the democratic 
discipline from within the individual, a 
kind of steel that must lie developed now 
for use in the life that uinlergraduates 
will soon enter. 

"Ideas are weapons only when they 
become concrete in an individual's life.

Richmond States Five 
Bases for Philosophy 

Philosophical Union Talk 
Emphasizes Individual 

Seeking "bases on which to build a 
philosophy that says 'yes' to life," Dr. 
Donald E. Richmond, Frederick Latimer 
Wells Professor of Mathematics, spoke 
to an overflow audience in Griffin library 
last night on "Afiirniations: An Amateur 
Philosophy," as a presentation of the 
Philosophical I'nion. Professor Rich- 
mond's lecture expressed a belief that 
"each individual has a unique contribution 
to make by being himself." 

Prof. Richmond affirmed five positive 
bases of judgment which he held to be the 
main tenets of his philosophy. "Man 
thinks" and "people differ in what they 
think" were his initial affirmations, that 
were obxinus, but irrefutable, ho believed. 
The two statements he evolved from these 
were that "every man must trust his own 
insight" and that "man makes himself in 
the light of his insights and the goals 
which he sets for himself." 

Convinced that man had freedom of will, 
Prof. Richmond claimed that "we must at 
least allow the freedom of choice that en- 
ables us to accept or reject determinism." 
Out of this concept he developed his 
climactic affirmation that "man feels 
responsible to himself for making his life 
and gains his deepest satisfaction from the 
acceptance of this responsibility." 

Protesting against the modern tendency 
to regard evil as a mere convention. Prof. 
Richmond pointed out that the "times are 
favorable for the rediscovery of the exist- 
ence of evil in case we've forgotten it." 
Man's natural pursuit is of the civilized, 
good life, he claimed, and "we must find 
a convincing critiipte of satisf,action for it." 

in this world or universe. 

"He recalled that it was this belief that 
gave birth to democracy, and went on to 
stress the point that it is only faith of this 
calibre that will preserve it. "We need 
men in Williams College, in other colleges 
and universities, and in this nation to 
proclaim this faith. We need men to 
believe in it and to live by it." 

College to Cooperate 
In Local Salvage Drive 

In a mo\e to cooperate with the Wil- 
liamstown sahage drive. Prof. Winthrop 
11. Root, directing defense measures for 
the college, this week summoned the 
undergraduate air raid wardens to a 
meeting at the Williamstown High School 
at 7:45 tonight. Mr. H;dward French, a 
salvage official for North Berkshire, will 
discuss the part that wardens can play 
in helping to put the drive over.

Developing 1946 Squad 

Plagued b\' lax attendance at daily 
practice's. Coach Kd Bullock made little 
progress with his soccer scpiad last week. 
With half the candidates reporting one 
day and half the ne.xt, all attempts to find 
clicking olTensive and defensi\e combin- 
ations failed. 

Bullock \iewed the irregular turnouts 
with concern. Exams begin ne.\t week 
and will probably result in a continuation 
of this lack of cooperation. With two 
games sciu-duled iluring vacation, pros- 
pects for fielding a well-coordinateil, e\- 
jierienced team have taken a tumble. 

With veterans Carter Hall and Ceorge 
Simson at the outside posts, sophomores 
have continued to see play in the line. 
Hall and (ius Gutterson, both halfbacks, 
are being tried on the outsitle of the line 
in the oiil\ two shifts to date. 

Under Hob Muir, the freshman sciuad 
has been working daily and is shaping up 
well. .Muir has two teams for iiilrasi]iiad 
games and an eleven composed of men from 
both these teams has scrimmaged the 
varsity lacli Tuesday and Thursday. 

Al Kehbein, a South American, and 
Koger Jospe, who came to tlii> country 
from Brl;.;iimi, have been stanilouls on the 
yearliii'^ line. Em Brown and l.oti Lincoln 
are otiii i top line men, while the defensive 
side ha> been ilominated by goalie John 
Mitchell and Don Stone, a fullli.ick.

for Williams will be veterans Mob Wallace,

Question mark of the line is the tackle

offensive game, but will probably be re-

is needed in that position. hwAy Knox 
can also expect to see ser\ii'e at left end. 
Playing on the first squad during game 
scrimmage this week, he hit hard and play-

Middlebury's line is an unknown quant- 
ity. Many of last year's linemen have 
been shifted to different positions, and Ic 
remains to be seen how they will play in 
their new berths. Al Boisscxain, 200 
pounds of right tackle, threatens to stall 
off-tackle plays. Freshman Charlie Puksta 
[days center and has shewn impressive 
defensive play in backing up the line.

Barnes and Heuer scoretl the widest

*Game a Triumph in WMS History' as College Hears Win; 
.,# Students, IVlerchants Finance Broadcast from Tigertown 

"Today's broadcast was a triumph in 
the history of WMS," Robert W. Hin- 
man, president of the college radio sta- 
tion, declared after the game. "I don't 
think that we've ever had better luck 
with a broadcast of a game away from 
home, although I'll admit that the whole 
project was a rather risky venture." 

The idea of broadcasting the Princeton 
game came from both Nion R. Tucker, Jr. 
'44 and Harold T. Johnson '43, Hinman 
continued. After talking over the possi- 
bilities of the success of such a broad- 
cast with Tucker, Johnson, the business 
manager of WMS, approached Einman 
with their suggestion on Tuesday noon. 
Owing to the expense of the. broadcast, 
Hinman admitted that he had his doubts 
as to whether they could pay the neces- 
sary expenses. 

IiitCKrily of Sludciils 

"We finally decided to rely on the in- 
tegrity of the Williams student," Hin- 
man continued. "On Tues.lay night we 

Captain Bill Courier whose backing up the 
title was a .najor factor in Williams' win. 

n-ade a survey of all the social groups on 
campus to ascertain how many fellow. s 
would be willing to pledge fifty cents or to hear the game broadcast. The re- 
sults of this survey were so successful 
that, added to the fact that seven mer- 
chants on Spring Street said they would 
sponsor the broadcast, we felt we could 
take the risk of spending over $125 for 
bringing the game to Williamstown." If 
all pledges are collected, the money gain- 
ed from both the students and the ad- 
vertisers should cover the costs. 

Deciding definitely to broadcast the 
game on Thursday night, WMS's tech- 
nical crew, under the direction of John 
0. Copley '44, began to work feverishly 
to repair wires to the Freshman quad and 
to several of the fraternities, where the 
reception had recently been reported as 
poor. Working not only during the day- 
time, but also throughout Thursday and 
Friday nights, the technical men finally 
managed to complete their job about 7.30 
on Saturday morning. 

Fla((scd Truck lo Priiicelon 

Copley, in charge of the broadcasting 
apparatfls at Princeton,' ha'd missed the 
seven o'clock bus from Williamstown, 
owing- to his work, in repairing the net- 
work's line.. IXltKough it was the last bus 
that could get him down to Palmer Sta- 
dium in time for the match, he succeeded 
in flagging a truck, hebded in that general 
direction. Arriving at Princeton just be- 
fore the game started, he was three 
minutes late in getting the broadcast 

In spite" of this tnindr^dehiy, Hinrnan 
declared that he felt the broadcast had 
b?en a great soccesn. "AH -the -credit 
must go to Hal.JohTiapn,".he went on, 
"because, fn addition to getting the idea 
for the hroadcast, he did a fine job of 
announcing. I also want to thank the 
advertisers of the broadcast, and the un- 
dergraduates, who pledged their support. 
We got such an enthusiastic response to 
our survey of Tuesday night, that I 

doubt if we will have to ask the pledgers 
to pay more than forty cents apiece." 

Play-By-I*Luy Account 

Practically all the Williams student 
body, who were not engaged in frantic 
preparation for final examinations, spent 
Saturday afternoon beside their radios. 
Wherever one went over the campus, he 
could hear Johnson's voice giving a play- 
by-play account of the game. Hinman 
,confes.sed that the reception of the game 
had been unusually fine throughout the 
entire college. 

Although it had first been planned to 
have the game relayed only to the audi- 
torium in Jesup Hall, it was later decided 
to rely on the pledges of the undergrad- 
uates, and have the contest broadcast to 
all dormitories and houses. Hinman de- 
clared that he hoped all students who had 
listened to the game would be willing to 
help WMS in ii.leviating the expenses of 
the broadcast. 

hy Fred IJarnt's ' V.i 

Saturday, October 3 - The ghosts of nine former Williams losses to 
Princeton suddenly came to life with stunning vengeance this after- 
noon when a traditionally underdog Williams eleven turned back all 
threats from heavily-favored Princeton to triumph, 19-7. 

It was not a mightier Princeton eleven that went down to defeat 
in the brilliant afternoon sun.shine, foi' the Purple equalled the 
Tigers in the line and outweighed them slightly in the backfield. 
Rather it was a fighting heart that finally quelled the New Jersey 
eleven, for the Purple came from behind to score this triumph ~ - 
probably the most memorable in recent hi.story. 

Bill Schmidt, Gunner Hayes and Pat Higgins were the men who 
crossed the Tiger goal line for Williams, and it was Schmidt who 
set the team off to its victory march with a brilliant thirty-eight yard 
jaunt in the second period after he had seemingly been tackled at 
his own line of scrimmage. 

A major factor in the afternoon's victory was the kicking of Tom 
Powers, who continually set Princeton back deep in its own territory. 
In the second period he pulled his team out of a deep hole with a 
towering 60-yard boot from behind his own goal line, after Princeton 
had been stopped on the 2. 

When both teams left the field for the 
half, Princeton held a 7-6 lead and it 
looked as though the precedent set in 
former years was to hold true — that a 
good little college team cannot defeat a 
good big college team. 

llaycM Takes Charlie 

But four minutes after the opening of 
the second half Hayes put tradition out 
of the limelight, when he took Bob 
Perina's punt squarely on the fifty yard 
line and set sail on a touchdown jaunt 
that gave Williams a lead that it never 

These points would have been sufficient 
as the matter turned out, but just to 
make the victory a touch more sweet the 
same irrepressible Hayes wheeled in his 
tracks five minutes later and tossed a 
pass to freshman star Pat Higgins who 
gathered the ball in on the Tiger 30 and 
raced across the goal line with five yards 
of golden sunshine between him and Bob 
Perina, nearest potential tackier. 

Marshall Scores for Tincra 

That was how the points were scored on 
this memorable afternoon, but the way 
that Princeton was held on the ground by 
a fighting Williams line was even more 
of a tribute to the men who finally tri- 
umphed in this old rivalry. Three times 

during the first half the Tigers .smashed 
downfield. Once .sophomore Dave Mar- 
•shall hit pay dirt, but twice the red-hot 
Williams line stalled the — once 
at the '2-yard line and once at the three, 

r.upl. Courier Slurs 

Captain Bill Courter played himself a 
whale of a game in backing up the line, 
and along with credit for hts sterling play 
goes praise for the remainder of a line 
that held the Tiger running attack to 
sixty-three yards overland, while shoving 
the Princeton forwards back enough to 
let the Williams backs through for 128 

WillianiH Line Powerful 

But more should be said about the 
Williams line for the way that it kept 
the Princeton pass attack from bein? 
more effective than it was. Traditionally 
a passing team — from erstwhile star 
Dave Allerdice to current Bob Perina — 
the Orange and Black to.ssed thirty-one 
passes during the course of the afternoon, 
but so potent was the Purple line's charge 
that only twelve times did the sensational 
senior back hit the target. In all Prince- 
ton lost something over fifty yards when 
Perina was nailed behind the line of 
scrimmage while attempting to pass.

With considerable statistical flourish of 
his own, Professor Newhall put the finish-

'Times' Indictmenl 'Kidieuloiis' 

According to Professor Newhall's letter 
there are seven such courses now being 
offered at Williams, and on the average 
"ten per cent of all the courses taken by 
students in this class (1942) dealt with 
American topics. This is the equivalent 
of more than two courses per student." 
"If these figures apply in any comparable

move. From there on Princeton couldn't way to other colleges . 

even back the Cow into its stall, let alone 

milk the old critter. 

Wily Charlie Caldwell must have spent 
some time on pass defense since the 
Middlebury game. The supposedly 
formidable pass combination of Perina 
and Schmon was completely squelched. 
Charging Williams linemen forced the 
New Jersey backs to lose ground con- 
stantly as they tried to find open re- 
ceivers for their thirty-one attempted 

Amherst and Wesleyan coaches will 
quail when they read about Gunner 
Hayes' arc to Pat Higgins for seventy 
yards and a touchdown. They've always 
got to worry about Hayes' riding arm. 
He's quite a thorn in their sides; if he 
can't find an open man he'll more than 
likely run the ball for a first down. Watch 
out you .feffs. 

Wesleyan must be pretty low anyway. 
Bowdoin beat them today, 18-0. Is 
Bowdoin good or Wesleyan bad? We're 
inclined to think that Bowdoin must 
have an all-right team. Perhaps the 
toughest game left on the Eph schedule, 
is going to be played October 10 in Bruns- 

Amherst took the field this week for the 
first time and showed scoring ability 
against Springfield by chalking up a 
27-19 win. Whether Amherst beat 
Springfield on the .strength of its own 
power is a matter of doubt.

Dr. Newhall Explains 
U. S. History Stand 

Calls Times' Required 
Plan 'Ridiculous'; 
Cites Williams' Case 

Clarifying his own position in a con- 
troversy begun last June in the columns 
of the New York Times over an alleged 
neglect of American history, traditions, 
and ideals in the college curriculum. Act- 
ing President Richard A. Newhall de- 
clared last week that the "failure of Wil- 
liams College to require a course in Amer- 
ican history ... is not . . . subject to 
the strictures which the Times discussion 
of this matter implies." 

Not Printed in 'Times' 

In a lengthy letter to the editor, which 
was not printed in the Times, but which 
appeared in the Springfield Republican, 
Professor Newhall challenged the edi- 
torial assertion of the Times that "courses 
in the history of the United States be re- 
quired of all students in our colleges and 
universities regardless of their academic 
programs." The basis of the Times' 
stand was a nation-wide survey completed 
three months ago, which undertook to 
prove by a mass of figures and percentages 
that since most American colleges did not 
require students to take American his- 
tory, these same neglected students lack- 
ed a truly patriotic appreciation of the 
American heritage which they are striv- 
ing to protect on the world's battlefronts

Tiger Rush Checked 

The second half was pretty much all 
Williams if one takes a look at the chart 
of the game, for only twice did the Tigers 
ever get up over the fifty yard line on 
sustained drives. 

With time running out Princeton start- 
ed back on its own two yard line with a 
burst of power that might well have 
brought a touchdown. But after throw- 
ing passes to Captain Dick Schmon on 
three plays, the Tigers tried a fourth pass 
that boomeranged into the waiting arms 
ot Williams' quarterback Tom Powers 
and after that bit of play it was only a 
matter of time till the game ended.

Stimson Answers 
Alarmists; Clarifies 
Stand on A.E.R.C. 

Lowering of Draft Age 
to 19 Not Anticipated 
Until Christmas 1943 

Irked by thf clamor of protest which 
^lilted the recent announcement thai 
most college reservists will probably be 
i-,illed up early next year, Secretary of 
War Henry L. Stimson answeretl his 
critics last week with a flat denial of the 
charge that the Army Enlisted Reserve 
plan means the "end of all higher educa- 

The Secretary of War called this atti- 
iiide a "misapprehension," but his state- 
ment that "the Army is in need of men of 
specialized training, particularly in 
physics, chemistry, engineering and medi- 
cine, offered scant encouragement to 
liberal arts colleges. He scored alarmed 
educators, however, for jumping to con- 
clusions, and insisted that "the notice that 
the call to duty would come early in 1943 
should not have occasioned great surprise." 
Proceed with Studies 

Stimson suggested that "young men 
who have joined the Army Enlisted 
Reserve or who now enlist in it, should 
proceed with their studies until they are 
called to active duty." "When they arc 
called," he said, "the Army will utilize for 
their further training, such facilities of its 
own as it ma\- have or of the colleges as it 
deems best to meet military requirements 
as they then exist ." 

A. C. E. Issues Statement 

Sinmltaneous with the Stimson state- 
ment came a bulU'tin issued by the 
American Council on Educaticm, which 
slated that it is probable that the Selective 
Service Act will lie revised to permit 
ilraftees in the second semester of a college 
\ear to linish out that term if they wish. 
The special release further revealed that 
the much-discussed proposal to lower the 
draft age will probably not be acted on 
until after Christmas of 1943, and that the 
minimum age will more likely be set at 
nineteen, rather than eighteen. 

The Navy Department has announced 
that because the need for naval officers is 
regulated by the available ships afloat, it 
is unlikely that any change in their pro- 
gram will take place in the near future. 
Ihe Marines and the Coast Guard have 
made no announcements of proposed 
changes, but their representatives have 
warned that should the exigencies of the 
war require, reservists will be called to the 
( iilors immediately. 

Williams Golfers Blank 
Middlebury In Wind-up 

Davis, Steel Set Scoring 
Pace in Cold Weather 

With high winds and the first touch of 
biting fall weather hindering the play of 
l)ol h teams, Williams' golfers romped over 
a weak Middlebury sextet, 9-0, on the 
Taconic course last Monday. It was 
their second win in as many inter-colle- 
giate .starts since June. 

From all appearances, the match was 
the season's golf wind-up. A combination 
of I'Viday afternoon exams and vacation 
have forced the golfers to refuse an invi- 
tation to play against Colgate, Dart- 
mouth and Middlebury Saturday, October 
10 in Hanover, New Hampshire. 
Heuer Battles Young 

Only in the first foursome was the inatch 
close. Here a stubborn fight by Sandy 
Young and Bill Engesser carried Captain 
Fred Barnes and Charlie Heuer to the 
eighteenth green before dropping the 
bcstball point. In the top individual 
'Hatch Heuer downed Young 2 and 1 after 
leading by four holes at the turn. These 
two were the only matches that lasted 
beyond the fourteenth green. Barnes 
topped Engesser 6 and 5 for the third 
point in this foursome.

Impressive Purple Ground Offense Crushes 
Middlebury, 41-0, in Season Opener 

by Bruce McCleixan '45 

The gho.sts of nine previoii.sly di'leated Williams elevens will be 
watcliiiig from the parapets of Palmer Stadium this Saturday when the 
1942 Epii .squad takes the field against Princeton. After flattening 
Middlebury, U-O, last week the Purple squad holds a jiaper-rating 
equal to the 1911 team that lest to Princeton, 20-7, after tronncing 
Middlebury, :$3-0. 

This year's squad lacks the husky and aggressively experienced 
linemen of the 1941 season but makes up for this loss with a surplus of 
fast backs who are equal or better than any combination carrying the

WMS Plans to Air 
Princeton Contest 

Financial Aid Necessary 
to Alleviate High Cost; 
Student Pledge Sought 

The Princeton game will be broadcast to 
Willianistown by WMS sometime Satur- 
day afternoon, if a sufficient number of 
students pledge themselves to pay fifty 
cents or less to alleviate the expenses of 
telephoning the game from Princeton, 
Robert W. Ilinnian '43, president of the 
college radio station announced yesterday. 
BroadcaHl in Past Years 

Under ordinary circumstances such 
financial aid from the student body would 
not be necessary, for the Princeton game 
has been broadcast by WMS in past years, 
without the necessity of appealing to the 
undergraduates. This year, however, 
Hinman said war time conditions have 
made telephone costs much more expensive 
than they were in other years. 

Hinman stressed the fact that the more 
students who pledge to support the costs 
of broadcasting the game, the less each of 
them will have to pay. If a large enough 
number of undergraduates ofTcr to con- 
tribute, the game will be broadcast to all 
houses and dormitories where WMS has 
installed transmitters. The early plan to 
relay the game only to the auditorium in 
Jesup Hall has been discarded, Hinman 

All Help Needed 

A two-day survey of the number of 
students who would be willing to pledge 
their financial support will be completed 
this evening. "Don't be a slacker", 
Hinman declared, "and try to hang on to 
the coat tails of some-one who docs 
pledge their help. If enough fellows 
promise to contribute, the expense per 
each student will be next to nothing." 

All in all, the total expenses of broad- 
casting the game to Willianistown will be 
at least $125. While approximately 
ninety dollars of this sum will pay for the 
telephone lines themselves the other 
thirty-five will take care of transportation

War Heroes Speak 
In Jesup Assembly 

Houses Hold Discussions ; 
Russians Demand 2nd 
Land Front in Europe 

hy Edward J. Block '45 

Speaking brokenK, fluently, or in a 
forcigh language according to their varying 
nationalities, live I'nited Nations war 
heroes climaxed several inforjiial dis- 
cussicms by addressing a large audience in 
Jesup Hall, Sunday evening. Acting 
President Richard A. Newhall conducted 
the war rally. 

Introduced by Miss Monica Owen, 
assistant conference secretary of the 
International Student .Service, each 
speaker emphasized the part that men of 
the student age were playing in their 
respective countries to bring the war to a 
successful conclusicjn. Each expressed 
faith in the ultimate victory of the United 
Nations cause. 

'Death to Fascism' 

The two Russian representati\'es, speak- 
ing dramatically in their native timgue 
with an interpreter, were particularly 
vociferous in iheir demands for an imme- 
diate second front. 

"Our youth hasn't spared blood, or, 
more precious, lives to light for what they 
belie\e in," declared Nicolai Krasav- 
chenko, fortifications and supply engineer 
of the Moscow defenses. "We will be 
more grateful to those who prove their 
good faith by deeds instead of words," 
Krasavchenko added. 

His countryman, Lieutinani X'ladimir 
Pchelinstsev, a sniper on the Leningrad 
front with 152 dead Nazis to his credit, 
stated that "ninety percent of the total 
German forces are lighting on the Eastern 
front, the greatest fnmt of the second 
World War," before concluding with his 
dramatic, "death to Ka.scism." 

Miss Lung Wang, a famous Chinese 
actress originally scheduled to appear, was 
unable to accompany the war hero 
eiilouriijie and was replaced by Ming Tai 
Lee, a mining engineer now studying at 
the I'niversity of California. Mr. Lee 
stressed the difficulties of students in 
China during the war and expressed con- 
fidence in the triumph of the United 

British Officer Speaks 

Captain Peter Cochrane, 1). S. C, of the 
British arm\' who was decorated for 
service in Africa, emphasized mental 
preparation for liattle among students, 
declaring, "You are not an efficient fight- 
ing man unless ycm know what \()U are 
fighting for. Think now !" 

Raden Kadir, Javanese knight of 
Orange-Nassau, described the preparations 
for war in the Dutch East Indies and the 
gallant struggle against the Japs which 
proved tragically futile. Mr. Katlir also 
closed with an optimistic prophecy for the 

Acting President Newhall, himself a 
veteran of the first World War, opened the 
rally by reminding armchair strategists 
that "we are now one of the United 
Nations; it contributes nothing to our 
cause to indulge in 'constructive criticism' 
of our allies." The war ralK' followed a 
number of receptions for the individual 
visitors at the various social organizations 
on campus.

A Review: February September, 1942 

Since I^Oi the ictiriiif;: editors mid iiuiiiagi'i-.s of TiiK Rioroui) liuve 
devoted tiieir final editorial to the radical of criticizing them.selves, 
of .siiinmariziii},' briefly wiiat have been their major and failures. 
■\Ve of l')i:5 have edited llii.s newHiJaper diiriiif; day.s of revolutionary 
c-liaiige at Williani.s, and<|iieiitly traditional .standards cannot help 
us determine what we liavc accomi)li.shed in publishing twenty-eight 
issues of a warliiiie Ukcoki). 

Frankly, we do not know what successes, if any, we have achieved. 
Eleven proposals made in these columns since Kebruary I have been 
a(loi)ted by various college organizations or individuals, but we are under 
no delusion that all these acts sprang from our editorials. We fully real- 
ize that many of the ideas which we supported have been jHit into action 
by organizations nieinbers and leaders got their ideas iiidei)endent 
of us. We list achievenienls to reveal what other undergraduates, 
faculty members, and alumni have accomplished, and to show what we 
have stood for this year: 

\Mial Vi e Have Stood For 

The delegation of ])o\ver from faculty to llndergiiidiiate Council for 
cnforcenu'iit of college driving rules; 

The college's siijiport of Russian War Relief, the \\C\ Chest Fund, 
and the gift of the Whittlesey Room to Fort Devcns; 

.Vdoplion by the sixteen fraternities of Campus Business Manage- 

.Vbolition of the rule which puts legacies in a false position of in-efer- 
eiicc at the top of final bid lists during rushing; 

Institution of the Student-Farmer I'roject which now has over 1200 
hours of undergraduate work to its credit; 

Adoplidii by the college of conii)iil.sory Physical Training for all 
classes ; 

Api)roval by the S. A. C. of inex])eiisivc houseparty ])lans for the 

Hiiilding of an obstacle course for P. T.; 

Securing tiie delegation of power from the faculty to the Garfield 
Club for partial .self-government of Currier Hall; 

Toughening of enforcement of P. T. rules; 

Adoiition by the undergraduates of a more effective Constitution 
for Student Covcrnment. 

Although we cannot tell what ])art our editorials i)layed, if any, in 
the eleven achievements just listed, we do know in what ways we have 
failed, for our failures can be measured in terms of editorial propo.sals 
that have not been favorably received by niajority opinion. Our failures 
are serious because lliey indicate where we have been unable to iiut acros'^ 
our beliefs. Despite our editorials: 

Where We Ha\«' l'"ailed I 

Physical Training still holds a reliilively uiiimi)ortant position in onr 
wartime cinriculum, and progress towards the goal of daily P. T. is being 
made but slowly. 

The faculty has no more iiarticipation in what the trustees do. and 
the undergraduates very little more |)articii)atiou in what the facnily 
does, than before we entered Williams. 

.\1 though the ability to enforce legislation is es.sential to effective 
undergraduate government, the new Executive Committee lacks Ijic 
powers which now belong to the faculty's Committee on Disci|)line. 

The college has not yet donated blood to the Blood Service of the 
American Red Cross. 

Hell Week in wartime has not been restricted to the learning of 
fraternity history and ideals, and to the formal i)roce.sses of initialion. 

The "house line," an almost inviolable tradition that members of a 
.social unit delegation will back one of their number, continues to place prestige above individual merit in selecting class nominees. 

The average student still voles only apathetically in college eleclions, 
still does not bother to att<'nd college meetings, .still fails to take ad- 
vantage of the concert, leclnre, or dramatic op])ortunities offered here. 

But we cannot believe lliese failures belong to us alone. They be- 
long to every member of the college eommiinity who allows an inbred 
conservatism and an iiiexplaiiiable distrust of innovation to sabotage 
most of the progressive jjioposals ])resente(l here and elsewhere. Our 
failures belong to undergraduates who do not yet know how to do 
their best by this war because they still think in terms of Hell Week and 
luniseparties, not war stamps and .secinid fronts. At times we have been 
guilty of eon.servatisni. mistrust, and business as usual ourselves. We 
hope our .sneccs.sors will never be, and that they will rectify many of the 
mistakes and failures which we are leaving them. We believe their 
oi)portuiiity for jjrogressive action is great, for the low morale of last 
.summer and the concept of business as usual at William.s are both reced- 
ing into the background today. 

We are glad to liave had a part in gearing a new William.s to the 
of the riiited Nations. We are glad our ex|)eriences on Tlir Rict oni) have 
cemented our faith in man's ability to do things for him.self, to master his 
own destiny, to prove that Jeffer.son, not Hamilton, was right. .Viid we 
are glad that we are being succeeded by men who feel that victory in the 
war and in the pence is the main responsibility of Williams College, and 
who are convinced that the Williams faculty and nndergraduales, what- 
ever their shortcomings, will mea.siire up to the challenge of that resixiiisi- 

I'his column, now appearing weekly, 
will be II ckaring-house for editorial com 
ment and for important notes concerning 
U'il Horns life in a world at war. At the 
same lime the column will be Williams'

Williams cheerleaders have generally left 
something to be desired. At the Middlehury 
game Saturday this year's edition of the 
staff appeared Utile better, failing to live up 
to the good standard set by Friday's rally. 
Joking and lack of concentration character 
i:ed the day. The Williams staff must 
realize that cheerleading is more than an 
opportunity to wear white flannels once a 
week ; it is a iob, a tough iob, one which must 
lie done well.

Although Middleliury was cooked to an 
extravagant 41-0 tune on the Williams 
gridiron last Saturda\, the game was no 
yardstick to compare ihe Kph sipiad willi 
other college teams. The Panthers proved 
to be little belter than a good prep school 

■|"he lighting efTorls of their whole squad 
were sabotaged b\ the pitifully weak 
center of the line. To help his line the 
visitors' coach pushed his 6-2-2-1 defense 
in so close to the scrimmage line that 
Williams aerial plays were virtual cer- 
tainties. Over-shifling also weakened the 
line still further.

greater protection for ihe backs.

Althcmgh his parents have ncd learned 
where the air battle took place, his mother 
said that she assumed that he was hos- 
|)ila!ized in England. Lyon, who enlisted 
in the Royal Canadian Air Force at 
Montreal in June, 1941 after linishing his 
sophomore year at Williams, was at- 
tached to the bomber command. After 
training in Canada, he \v;i> sent over- 
seas last March. 

■file word of Lyon's injury reached 
his parents from his wife, the former Helen 
Suzelte Gale, of Quebec, Canada, whom he 
married last February shiulb' before his 
departure for England. I'wo months ago, 
Lx'on's parents had received an enthu- 
siastic letter from him, in which he de- 
clared that he was "ready to go." This 
was the last word the\' had heard of their 
son until the news of his being wounded 
reached them. His father has cabled 
I'riends in London in an atlempl "to try to 
get in touch with him." 

Lyon, now twenty-lwo years old, 
entered Williams in the fall of 19,19, after 
graduating from the Kent School. He 
was a member of Sigma Phi. He played 
freshman baseball, and, during his last 
year in college, was on the varsity foot- 
ball stjuad. His home is in Narberth, Pa. 

Boys' Club Reopens 
As Seventy Register 

The Williamstown Boys' Club, uniler 
the auspices of the WCA, has been pre- 
paring for its fall and winter activities 
during the last two weeks, as almost 
seventy boys signed up for ihe season. 
The Rev. Charles R. Monteilh '42 is in 
charge of the Club, while Williams stu- 
dents are serving as junior counselors. 

The main problem confronting the 
board of directors is the shortage of stu- 
dents willing to work at the Club. Ed- 
waril R. Howe '44, secretary of the Boys' 
Club, hopes that more men will take part 
after mid-year exams are finished. "Al- 
though we have only eight students signed 
up," says Howe, "others have spoken to 
me on this subject. I think we will have 
a full quota of about fifteen men." 

The Boys' Club building, loeateil on 
Cole Avenue, is replete with basketball 
court, ping pong and pool tables, and 
a radio. It is open six days a week from 
2:30 to 5:30 anil from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. 
to all Williamstown boys who have mem- 
bership cards. Games are organized 
during these periods for all who want lo 
take part. 

Soccer Team Plays 
Two Vacation Tilts 

Springfield, R.P.I. Oppose 
Booters in Cole Field 
Contests October 10, 17 

With games against Springfield and 
K.P.I, scheduled October 10 and 17, 
Coach Ed Bullock this week began pulling 
his soccer squad ihrough uvo-hour scrini- 
inages, lielween ihi- first and second teams 
and .igainsl the freshmen, in an attempt 
to find a consistent offensive and defensive 

Injuries and lax attendance have hamp- 
ere<l Bullock's efTorts, but by holding two 
hour drills ever>' afternoon through ihe 
examination period, he hopes lo have the 
squad in shape for the opener. The 
R.P.I, encounter will be played with bul 
a single day's practice after a week's la>- 
off, caused by the vacation after exams. 
Stults Wins Position 

The fitsi learn this week has seen Wall 
Stults holding down the center position 
in the absence of Larr\' Smith, speedv' 
sophomore forward, who is oiil with a 
knee injury. When Smith returns to the 
s(|uad, either he or Stults ma\' be shifted 
to one of the inside positions, for lhe\- have 
been the leading scorers in scrimmages. 
At the insiile posts letterman Hill Brewer 
and soijhomore Bill Eyre ha\'e been play- 
ing aggressive soccer and should get the 
nod over Nip Wilson. Carter Hall, last 
fall's right halfback, has been shifted to 
right outside, while anolher veteran, 
George Simson, is at oulside left. 
Thompson at Center Half 

Captain Larry Thompson has been a 
fixture at center halfback where he has 
sparked the eleven's ol'I'etiM' and defense. 
At left half, Frank VVozeneraft was the 
leading contender, but att ankle injur\' 
has krpl him out of act inn for a week. 
He will likely be ready lor play before the 
Springlield game. Right halfback is si ill 
open, with Cjordon Gelsinger and Deiiin 
X'olkmann fighting it oul for th<' position. 

The fullback positions are still the nmsl 
unsettled. Dave Thurston and Chink 
Walker have been pla\'ing on the first 
team for the past week, but Bill Klopman 
and Gordon Michler are pressing them 
steadily. Al James, laid up with a char- 
ley-horse, will be ready to pla\' in a few 
days to make it a five-cornered fight for 
the two fullback spots. Tom Hoo\ei 
has the goalie post just abimt clinched, 
although Hill Morrisex cannol be con- 
sidered out of the running.

join the Williams organization on Decem-

\assar appearance, the (dee Club will 
join with the local Bach Chorus sometime 
in December or early January for its 
second concert. 

Still in the process of formulation is the 
Wellesley concert, which, if given at 
Williamstown, will feature the joint 
appearance of the Wellesley (lice Club and 
an enlarged Williams Choir in a Sunday 
afternoon Chapel performance. If the 
concert is hehl at Wellesley, the same 
arrangement is expected to be followed, 
with the two groups joining in a chapel

Almost certain to be contracted is the 
concert with Bennington, which will 
present the Williams organization in con- 
junctit.)n with the Bennington .Symphony 
Orchestra or with vocal soloists front 
Bennington. Because of relative sim- 
plicity in transportation, the concert is 
expected to be arranged delinitely within 
a short time. 

The main obstacle to the ('■lee Club is 
the current transportation problem, which 
may prevent long trips and make the 
movement of the whole organization too 
expensive. The ileliniie appearance with 
X'assar and the summer performance of the 
(dee Club with Serge Koussevitsky at 
Tanglcwood, howex'er, ha\e made it as 
active as any college musical organization 
during the presenl year.

Second Semester 

High School Graduates 
Dominate 1946-0 Group; 
Pledge Night Saturday 

by John H. Winant '45 

following close behind the Presidential 
plea for a lower induction age, the second 
section of the class of 1946, sixty-eight 
strong, invaded Williamstown a week ago 
Wednesday night to begin four days of 
meetings and conferences designed to 
acclimate them to college life. 

S8% from High Schools 

Designated 1946-0, as differed from 
1946-J, the larger section entering in June, 
the class draws its membership predomi- 
nantly from high schools. Breaking the 
conventional Williams tradition of pre- 
paratory school supremacy, the group 
contains a fifty-eight per cent high school 
complement, as opposed to the average 
thirty per cent figure during recent years. 
Among the members are five sons of 
Williams alumni. 

The group began their orientation 
program with a series of conference 
sessions with faculty advisers Thursday 
morning, and followed through with the 
ICnglish Placement Test and the first class 
meeting. Convening in Jesup Hall Audi- 
torium, bfificials of the administration and 
athletic department extended a welcome 
in the form of short addresses covering 
the various sides of college interest. 
New (Jovfrnmcnt Explained 

Other meetiniis, at which the renovated 
plan of student government and the 
functions of the Honor System were ex- 
plained, followed on Kiiday and Saturday, 
along with the official college welcome and 
address of President James P. Haxter, 111 
'14 who hns returned to Williams on a 
five-day-a-week basis for the term. (See 
colunm 5.)

War Needs Evolve 
Two New Courses 

Chemistry Department 
Adds Pre-Med Classes ; 
Revises Senior Major 

In line with the policy of preparing 
undergraduates for present needs in the 
service of the nation, the chemistry depart- 
ment this week announced the revision of 
one course and the creation of a second to 
equip future doctors and chemists with the 
knowledge essential for war work. 

Future Trends Unpredictable 

Although a previous announcement from 
the department stated that no revisions 
were being contemplated because of peak 
enrollment, taxed equipment, and the 
necessity of a sound basis in the field before 
advanced training, the exigencies of the 
war have necessitated the changes. Both 
courses are to begin this semester on the 
new basis, but future trends in the depart- 
ment are unpredictable, and other re- 
visions may have to be made by next year. 

Chemistry 12, created to meet the needs 
of students who desire entrance into 
medical school before present schedules 
will allow them, will condense the material 
now given in Chemistry 7-8, laying 
emphasis on pre-medical points. Under 
the new plan, undergraduates can gain 
admission to most medical schools by the 
end of their junior year. At this point, 
approximately 23 students have enrolled 
in the course, which had its first meeting 
of the semester this morning at 1 1 :00. 
Five Main Divisionk 

Chemistry 10, which has been drasti- 
cally overhauled, will now concentrate on 
individual and group instruction in specific 
fields, with emphasis on relations to the 
War-world. The material to be covered 
in this course, which is the senior major 
sequence subject, is divided into five main 
divisions. The first. Metallography, will

Friend of Williams 
Bequeaths $50,000 
For Use of College 

The college that his .son-in-law and 
three grandsons attended was remembered 
recently in the will of the late Ellis P. 
Earleof Montclair, N. J., who bequeathed 
the sum of $50,000 for the use of Williams 
at its own discretion. Mr. Earle, long 
ntercsted in the college through his 
family, was for many years a prominent 
figure in Canadian and American mining, 
maintaining his offices in New York City. 

He was instrumental in creating the 
New Jersey State Board of Control of 
Institutions and Agencies, which regulates 
all public institutions in that state, and 
for twenty years served as its president. 

His son-in-law, Henry R. Johnston '09, 
is prominent among Williams alumni, 
having served as a member of the College 
Board of Trustees for the term 1926-31. 
He is also the donor of the Johnston 
Trophy, emblematic of the friendly com- 
petition in athletic and scholastic contests 
between Williams and Amherst. Johns- 
ton's sons, Douglas '3i, David '39, and 
Alexander '41, were all prominent in 
college activities.

Comparative Game Scores Give Purple Edge; 
Ephs Seek Twelfth Win in Series 

by Bruce McClellan '4.S 

With heavy odds against them the Fufts eleven will invade Williamstown this 
Saturday to meet an undefeated F^ph squad at 2:30 p. m. on Weston F'ield. The 
opening whistle will lind both teams in top shape for the llfteenlh game of a lift \- 
seven year rivalry. 

Williams will be seeking its twelfth win'f' 
in the series against the Jundjos. The 

visitors this yi'ar have won only one game, 
and have lacked olTen.sive power to back 
their strong defensive spirit. 

Purple Highly Favored 

The Medford eleven bowed to Bowdoin, 
13-0, and heal Middlebury by a t wo touch- 
down niargin. Bates and Boslmi Iniver- 
sity beat Tufts by single tallies. Williams' 
decisive wins over both Middlcbury and 
Bowdoin give the Purple an edge on the 
basis of comparative scores. 

Coach Lewis Manly carries a small 
squad built around eight returning letter- 

men who will remember the 34-7 whipping 
handed tbeni b\' the I'Ml Purple squad. 
With freshmen still ineligible at Tufts, new 
material has ctniH- mosth from the sopho-

Scrap Drive for Metal 
Amasses Over 125 Tons 

Search for Fraternity 
Salvage Begins Oct. 26 

Boilers, bathtubs, safes, fences, and 
even a suit of armor have been brought 
together in a bizarre collection of scrap 
accumulated as a result of the local salvage 
drive for metal which has amassed over 
1 25 tons the past three weeks, according to 
Wallace E. Green, chairman of the salvage 
committee. Looting of the fraternities 
for unused metal will begin Monday in a 
campaign initiated by two freshmen. 
Marry N. Bane and James M. Smith, at 
the suggestion of Thomas J. Wood, 
director of admissions. 

Deposit Bins Erected 

Air raid wardens under the direction of 
Elmer B. Noble, chief air raid warden, 
have canvassed every home, place of 
business, and farm, evaluating the amount 
of available scrap and sending trucks to 
collect it.' Deposit bins have been erected 
at Main Street, Cole Avenue, Bryant's 
Barn, the South Center School in South 
Williamstown, the Broad Brook School in 
White Oaks, and West's filling station on 
Spring Street. 

School children have been cooperating 
effectively in the drive ever since its 
inception three weeks ago, bringing in 
lighter scrap and forming a collection of 
keys. The Williamstown High School 
staged a "scrap dance" at the Mitchell 
auditorium last week and charged an 
admission price of ten pounds of scrap.

Benefit Training Table 

War Relief Party Set 
For Following Weekend 

The Purple Ke\ , s|)onsor of tomorrow 
evening's dance at l.asell ('i\ni, announced 
Wednesday that all prolits will go to the 
training table. David W. Brown '43, 
Purple Key presi<lent, said, "This year, 
even more than in the past, the training 
table has had to give many waiting jobs. 
As we have an excellent team, the under- 
graduates should show their appreciation 
by attending the ilance." 

New Popular Songs 
The Purple Knights will furnish the 
music, beginning promptly at 9:00 and 
continuing with brief intermissions until 
midnight. Donald L. I'uchs '44, manager 
of the Knights, said that although the 
orchestra had not had much time for 
practice recently, it will be prepared to 
play some popular new scnigs including 
White Christmas, Manhallaii Serenade, and 
Mister Five-by-Five. 

A series of Allied War Relief dances is 
to be inaugurated Friday, October 30. 
Two orchestras will be on hand to play 
continuous music; the Purple Knights and 
Baden Lewis of North Adams, famed 
player of round and square dance music. 
Joe Face of Troy will act as caller. The 
proceeds of this dance will be divided 
equally among China, Great Britain, 
Greece, the Netherlands, and Russia. 

Tickets for tomorrow night's dance are 
eighty-five cents. They may be purchased 
from house heads, while the members of 
the football team will sell tickets at the 
door on dance night. 

President Will Spend 
Five Days Here, Two 
in Nation's Capital 

Chapel Speaker Sunday 

President James P. Baxter, 111 '14 
returned this week to the desk in No. 1 
Hopkins Hall which he left in August, 
1941, when he assumed the office of I )eputy 
Coordinator of Information, under Col. 
William J. Dcmovan. President Baxter 
will continue his war work on a two-day 
per week basis, spending the rest of his 
time as Williams' chief executive.

Williamstown executive work. Dr. Baxter 
has gone back to the classroom, where he 
is teaching and lecturing, together with 
Professor Richard A. Newhall, in, Political 
.Science 4, the course which Professor 
Fri'derick L. Schuman abandoned when he 
went to Washington last week. The 
Presideiu will also deliver lectures on 
American diplomatic history in conjunc- 
ti(m with History 10.

Appointed by Colonel l)ono\'an, then 
the Coordinator of Information, Dr. 
Baxter remained in the same position 
when Elmer Davis became chief of the 
newly-created all-inclusive OHice of War 
Information. Donovan's department 

then became known as the Ofiice of 
Strategic Services and was put under the 
general staffs of the .'\rm\' an<l Nav\'.

CBM Initiates Uniform 

The Campus Business Management 
under the direction of Frank K. Thonis, Jr. 
'30 will take a big step fcnward the lirst of 
next month when its initial majiir objective 
will be achieved with the introduction of 
a uniform system of bookki'eping for all 
fraternities. In conjunction with this 
move, budgets for a new twelve-month 
fiscal year and monthly report forms will 
be instituted as part of the new program. 
Uniformity of Bookkeeping 

In addition to uniformity, the innova- 
tion will offer many other advantages to 
meet the pressures of econcmiy and time in 
a war crisis. By a simple adaptation of 
of the kind of books now in use at one of 
the fraternities, this plan eliminates the 
cost of new forms and has the advantage 
of completeness without .sacrifice of clarity. 
With little study anyone can learn how to 
keep the books — an important feature in 
view of the more rapid turnover in the 
personnel of house treasurers. 

Time spent on bookkeeping will be kept 
to a minimum and in a sense the new 
system is self-balancing. The real gain or 
loss of a house can be easily computed at 
definite periods. Complete results for 
each month will be ta\)ulated in the report 
forms, and a visual comparison with 
budgeted monthly expectations will be 

Copies of the reports will be typed and

Where We Stand 

Almost elcvtii iiioiitlis liavf (■lai)sed since llie cditoi' of The RECOiti) 
.said, "(ieiitlcimii, il is lu'iv." eleven moiitlis have elapsed .since 
on Deeemher «, 1^11, lie said. "Two decades ago il was another genera- 
lion's war. This (nic is ours," 

Today almost iinylhiii}'' we, tiie Ihirty-eightli editorial hoard ()f 
Tin; Wii.i.iA.Ms Recohi), can say would be trite. Hut this war hasn't 
been ours; others have I'oiiK'lil i" "iir ])laces all over the world. We've 
been liviiif;' on l)oi-i-o\ved lime, .some editors have .saiil. 
Liberal Arts The Fxitiire 
Williams Collese has ehaii^ed a lot in eleven moiillis; unprecedented 
limes have activated unpi-ecedeiited cbaiifie in every liberal arts institu- 
tion. IJut Williams is still Williams, and liberal arts is still liberal ai-ts 
despite .siinmier sessions and speed-ups. Some of the nation's leaders 
have challeuKeil the right of liberal arts to existence in wartime. A 
news stoi-y covering the Congressional debate on drafting eighteen- and 
iiincteen-year-ohl men quoted North ("ai'olina's Rcin-eseiilative C'ooley 
as follows and I'an: 

■'/'(/ he williiifi to liaio all the ediiralimial institiiliona of the country 
whiili arc Imi-hing. philosophy, latin, and sociology and smli hunk turned 
over to traininii sUidouh for u-ar, hut there's no .such proposal up here. 
"Mr. Cooley's slalemeiits were applauded." 

We applaud Mr. Cooley's idea that students must take more active 
particii)ati<)ii in the war; we cannot ai)plaud his tactic, for we do not think 
of "philosoi)hy, Latin, and sociology and such "as "bunk." We agree 
that liberal arls as such seems to have lost all ineauiiig in the face of the 
job at hand. Many lihei-al arts stinlents lor nothing moi-e than an 
opi)(>rtiinity to make this war their war. It now ai)pears that op])ortuiiily, 
in one form or another, will be given them — anil .soon. 

Hut until that lime, a sincere effort to ilevelop physically and mental- 
ly will be our best cuntrihution to the of the United Nations. And 
until that time tlieie is much to be done liiic at Williams wiiei-e they ai-e 
still "teaching pliilo.sophy, Latin and smiology and such bunk." We, 
the thirty-eighth hoai-d of editoi-s, will diilieale ourselves to the realiza- 
tion of a i-emucil war prof^rani; we will attempt to bring about a rebirth 
of the aggressive spirit which charaetiri/.ed the Pre-1'earl IlarborWilliams. 
A Program for I be I'roseiil 
In line with this jwlicy we will at this time support an eight-point 
program : 

I — Wo vvill urge a faculty lecture series on the condnct of the war and 
on peace aims as a prerequisite for the rebirth of high morale at Williams. 

11 — We will wholeheartedly hack the college ,scia|) metal drive i)roposcd 
by a group of freshmen for the near future. The (largoyle fence, ornate 
grill work on the geology lab, old fiiniaces and jiipes in college and frater- 
nity buildings, metal fence po>ls In i)re.serve grass. unu,sed boot .scrai)ers 
on local i)orches, and hrokeiiiliiwn I'adiators are metal objects which 
could .serve more usefully in tin rnim of hiillels. rifles and tanks. 

Ill — We will support any and all war slainp or war bond drives on 
campus. Among oilier things. I he I'lirple Key might anctiou the Wes- 
leyan game hall, antogiaplic(l by the ca|)laiiis, to the highest war bond 
bidder between the halves on Nnvcinbcr 7. The Interfratemity Council 
might take definite .steps Inwaiil the establishment of regular weekly 
investnienl plans in eaeli of llir fraternities. 

IV — We will investigate llie advisability of further em])hasis on the 
])hysical training prognm al Williams. Increasing P. T. jieriods by 
half an hour or a five-da\ I'. T. week must be considered as distinct 
possibilities for the near fiiliiie. 

V — Till'. Recohi) will eiiiiliiiiie In back llie C'ampus Business Manage- 
ment office and will cniiliiinr to reeoinmeiul strict economy wherever 

VI — We will .sniiport llir res ilali/,eil undergraduate governing body and 
will advocate student rr|ires(iilatii)ii at faculty meetings of mutual 
stuilent-faculty concern. 

VII — We will back any rMlimial plan for reorganizing the ])ublicity set- 
up at Williams College. 

VIII — Wc shall eonliiHie I lie now traditional fight against the idiocies 
of Hell Week and the fre.shman-sophomore riot.

Williams in wartime has begun a new 
semester, the third since the shattiiinK 
attack on Pearl Harbor last Deceiiibir 
And during the past eleven hectic inoMlhs 
of almost continuous session the cnlhgi. 
has iiiulergone severo stresses which liaM 
strained some of Williams' tradilion.d 
ideas to the breaking jjoint, and enos 
sitated a revaluation of tlios:' ideas in 
terms of larger issues. Old coiuepts lia\e 
been tested in the crucildc of modern war 
and in some instances have been lounil 
wanting. New ideas have takon tluir 

'this process of change, presased o\ ei a 
year ago by the aggressive Williams spirit 
of pre-Pearl Harbor days, is at bi»t a 
dani;i-roiis one. At Williams it has been 
essejilially sane, but the job is by no means 
done. We must not fear what must be. 
We must face facts, and .ul with calm 
assurance, born of careful ivfk'Ctioii, We 
must not oppose change and elin^ to the 
illusion of a static world. We must em- 
brace intelligent change as a sure sign that 
we are no longer bogged down in the con- 
fused indecision cliaricterislic of so much 
of .American thought in the past decade. 

Largely responsible for the successful 
development of a new and responsible 
attitude of mind at W'illionis, for the 
maintenance of academic cquiiihrinm, and 
for laying the ground-work of Williams 
cooperation in the war effort, has been 
Professor Richard A. Newhall, acting 
president of the college for the past fourtccit 
months. .'Stepping into the breach when 
President James P. Baxter, III '14 was 
called to Washington in August of 1941, 
Professor Newhall has done a fine admin- 
istrative iob during some of the most trying 
months in the history of the college. He 
deserves the gratitude of the undergraduate 
body and of all who are interested in the 
welfare of Williams. Now that President 
Baxter is back, Professor Nitwhall's iob 
is over. But we shoidd be reaping future 
dividends from his work of the past year for 
some time to come. 

One of the best editorials we have seen 
recently in a college iiewspa|)er appeared 
Saturday, October .< in the Daily Prince- 
Ionian. It advocated the complete de- 
mocratization of I'lineeton's entrance re- 
quirements, which now exclutlo negroes. 
Though the negro proMcm is not an issue 
at Williams, the discussion now raging at 
Princeton exemplifies t,ic urgent need for 
an unceasing battle fnr principles on the 
home front as well as lor a milittiry victory 
on the battle front. 

The war is no excuse for Americans to 
forget the pecan pickers in San Antonio, 
or for England to iiegleet the welfare of her 
millions of wards in Imlia, blinded by the 
brilliance of what Churchill has called 
"the brightest jewel in our imperial 
crown," Before our cLiims to democratic 
humanitarianism can carry much con- 
viction to the other peoples of the world, 
we must set our own house in order. 

Trivial, yet indicative of a laxity in 
attention to details and in academic dis- 
cipline, is the rather notorious dilatoriness of 
certain professors, who, when'fWK Record 
went to press last night had failed to return 
the marlis of those who enclosed postcards 
in their exam hooks over two weeks ago. 
Also trivial, but nonetheless annoying, is 
the practice of some professors in keeping 
books out of tite library for months at a lime. 

Rumors circulating to the effect that the 
Thanksgiving vacation will be extended to 
include Friday and Saturday, November 
27 and 28, were denied today by President 
H.axtor. As stated in the official college 
calendar, the only holiday will he on 
Thursday, November 26, Thanksgiving 

Liltewise unfounded is the report that 
the War Department has sent requests to 
all colleges asliing them to close tlwir doors 
during the month of December, so that stu- 
dent vacation travel will not interfere with 
the proposed Christmas leave for all service 
men. The railroads, however, have in the 
past requested that civilian travel be planned, 
whenever possible, so as not to interfere with 
the transportation of men in the armed

Debate Final Wednesday; 
Swarthmore, Bowdoin, 
Holy Cross Here Soon 

Post-war economic planning, the Indian 
problem, and the wartime status of col- 
lective bargaining represent a few of the 
problenis which the Adcjphic Union will 
debate as it heads this week into its busiest 
season in years. With two college tourn- 
aments yet to be completed, and with a 
tentative schedule of at least two inter- 
collegiate tourneys, two round table dis- 
cussions, and a home-and-home single 
debate within the next month, the Union 
is urging non-members to try out for de- 
bates and to become eligible for mem- 
bership if they participate.

Sometime within the next week, Wil- 
liams students will be called upon to 
donate old textbooks to the Williams 
Christian Association, Leonard C. Thomp- 
son '43, president of the WCA announced 
yesterday. These books will be sent to 
Allied war prisoners in German intern- 
ment camps, where the .Nazis have allow- 
ed their captives to set up temporary 

Thompson said that Alan Booth, gen- 
eral secretary of the International Stu- 
dents' Service, inaugurated this plan. 
Booth flew to tnis country from England 
about three weeks ago. 

Thompson said that the Iwioks the ISS 
wanted most were those ilraling with 
chemistry, physics, and mathematics. 
\t first the books will be donated by 
voluntary contributors. If, however, this 
plan fails to produce desirtti results,

10th Williams Man Dies 
As Plane Is Shot Down 
During Dusseldorf Raid 

The Alumni Office learned recenll>- ihat 
Peter Prime ex-'3S was killed while fl\ing 
with the RAF in the great air attack on 
Dusseldorf July 31. Edwin H. Adrlance 
'14, alumni secretary, also announced that 
John C. Guthrie '37 had been taken 
prisoner by the Japanese after the fall of 
Hong Kong. 

Piloted Heavy Bombers 

Prime, the tenth Williams man lo be 
killed in World War II, was a vcliran 
I)iiol in the RAI'. I'pon receiving his w ings 
as a sergeant pilot in December, l')4l al a 
Canadian training center, Piinie was 
ininiediateh- sent to England. Since that Cripslmlm 
linif, as pilot of a hea\'\' b<niibcr. he took 
parr in the British raids on Colov;rie, Essen, 

Breniiii, and other industrial einlers in 
(jcrnian h.'inds. 

JusI before his death, Prime was about 
lo have been transferred to the American 
Arm>- Air i-'orces. The lirst word of his 
death di<l not reach his family until very 
reeenll) . In August, however, the British 
Air Ministry had reported him a> "miss- 
ing." The fact that he had been killed in 
the Dusseldorf raid was conlirmed by the 
German government. This information 
reached the Inited States through the 
medium of the International Red Cross at 
Geneva. Prime is survived by his wife, 
the former Frances Heffernan, and his 
f(jur Near old son, fVter, Jr. 

Still in Jap Hands 

AltJKjugh no direct word from (iuthrie 
has reached tliis country- in almost a \'ear*s 
time, it is believed that he is still a prisoner 
of war in Japanese hands. What news of 
him that has reached the Alunnii Office 
has come from returning rcfuj;ei-> on ihe 
the Swetlish ship perniitti-d to 
leave Hong Kong b\' the Japaiic-r. 
(See PRIME, GUTHRIE page 5) 

The first move toward the installation 
of new officers under the new student 
governnicnl which takes over No\-endier 
9 and 10 will he the election of two juniors 
to the Executive Committee. The elec- 
tion will take |)lace by ballotting through 
the houses sonictinic next week, probably 
Wednesday. The Interfraternity Council, 
composed of the bouse presidents, will 
meet for tlie first time November ') to 
elect a president an<l a secretary. 

The plan for Civilian Pilot Training 

has had to be abandoned, Charles fi. 
Abbott '43, President of the Flying Club, 
revealed yesterday. Newton Reid, a pro- 
fessional flier who was to have financed the 
project, has cho.sen a field in Upper .\e%v 
York instead of in South Williamstown as 
was originally hopi-d. At present no new 
steps are being taken for the formation 
of a CPT at Williams. 

The Williams Outing Club announced 
yesterday that application blanks for en- 
listment in the 87th Mountain Infantry 
and bulletins pertaining to that branch of 
the armed forces, would be available with- 
in a few days. Undergraduates interested 
in becoming "ski troopers" should see

Outing Club, for information on enlist-

office each month. Hefore distribution 
CBM will make moinhly audits of the

on its findings. 

The new system was evolved from a 
study of three alternalives; the introduc- 
tion of an entirely (iriginal system; the 
copyingof the Amherst method, successful 
since its inception there in 1937; or the 
adoption of a system now in use by one of 
the Williams fraternities. The demands 
of money for new equipment and the com- 
plexities of the Andierst system led CBIVI 
to choose the third alternative. 

Technical improvements 

made during vacation 

have added many new 

potential listeners 

to the already large 

campus radio audience. 

These new listeners, 
as well as our old 
faithfuls, are cordially- 
invited to listen

Fifty aspirants to varsit\ berths on the 
C(miing season's Purple swimming team 
responded to Coach Bob Muir's initial 
call for candidates Wednesday afternoon 
at 4:00. The Williams metmen are slated 
to meet R.P.I, in the Lasell Pool early 
in December, and Muir plans to have his 
charges in excellent condition for the open- 
ing contests. 

Early Leads Squad 
Muir staled that although it was too 
early in thesea.son to predict what kind of 
a team Williams will have, outstanding 
veterans reporting for conditioning in- 
cluded Captain Donn Early, ace sprinter, 
distance man l.en Eattm, diver .W See, 
breast stroker Hank Hewetson. and back- 
strokers Ross Macd(mald and Gob Mist. 

Standouts of last winter's top-notch 
freshman squad answering the first call

Fresh Soccermen Win 

Fast J. V. Team Victor, 
33-0, as Cobden Stars 

With the varsity football .sc|uad in 
Brunswick last Saturday battling a 
stubborn Bowdoin eleven, two Williams 
teams, junior varsity football and fresh- 
man soccer, remained at home to score 
notable victories over Nichols Junior 
College and R. P. I., respectively. The 
jayvees swamped a heavier Nichols eleven, 
33-0, while the yearling soccermen rallied 
to defeat R. P. I., 2-1. 

Flips Pass to Leary 

Dick Cobden led the jayvees to their 
victory going over for two touchdowns 
himself and (lipping a pass to Tom l,rar\ 
for a third score. Dick Pratt scored once 
and senior Jim Drace snagged a pass and 
raced over for the final touchilowii. 
iMillowing a Williams score early in the 
first period the visitors tightened their 
defense, nionientarily holding the Purple. 
In the second half, however, the shifty 
jayvee backs broke loose again to net two 
touchdowns in each quarter. 

The probable starting line-up against 
Middlebury has Tom Leary and Brooks 
Wood at ends, and Tom Keirnan and Ken 
Case at tackles, both of whom have pre- 
vious varsity experience. Nip Mears and 
Hank Pennell are the first string guards 
while freshman Johnnie Cleveland will be 
in at center. In the backfield are Dick 
Pratt, Jim Crawford, Em llerndon, and 
Dick Cobden. 

Came from Behind 

Behind the offensive powir of Emmie 
Brown and Pat Whiteley, who each .scored 
one goal, and the steady game at center 
played by Al Rehbein, the freshman 
soccer team came from behind to down 
R. P. I. in the second half of their game on 
Cole Field. 

.'\lt hough playing goixl steady ball

iluring the first half, to accusiom itself to 
the peculiar and clever ball haiullingof the

It is a matter of record that the Foot-

head of a Dane for its first football. 
Harvard dignitaries banned football from 
the Yard in the middle of the nineteenth 
century on the grounds that "It is silly to 
haw a boxing match over a bag of wind." 
.Since then the pigskin struggle has 
become refined to a game of many compli- 
cations and rules. You can no longer 
punch, hold, or clip. The pile-on and 
flying tackles of not-so-long-ago have 
been ostracized.

But there is another coniponont in the 
football formula that is not so commonly 
recognized. It is particularly evident in a

Purple Yachtsmen See 
Three-Meet Schedule 

With one regatta already in its wake, 
the Williams Yacht Club is looking for- 
ward to two or three more meets before 
the fall season conies to a close. Opening 
its schedule in a pentagonal meet at New 
Lond(m, Conn., October 11, the Purple 
sailors managed to capture third place 
behind a victorious M.I. T. 

The Willianis club has recently been 
invited to the sc'cond annual Erwin H. 
Schnell Trophy Open Inter-Collegiate 
Regatta at the Charles River Basin 
November 1. On the following Sunday, 
yearling yachtsmen will see action in 
intercollegiate racing when a freshman 
team journeys to M. I. T. 

The Club plans to hold its annual meet-

coming year will be elected. 

Soccer Team Tops

Flynt, Brewer Pace Win;

Over Bullock's Eleven 

The Williams soccer team finally caught 
fire Wednesday as it rallied from defeats 
by Springfield and R. P. I. to trounce 
Mass. State, S-0, at Amherst. Back in 
the regular practice routine after irregular 
workouts during exams and a complete 
layolT over v.acation, Ed Bullock's eleven 
completely dominated |)lay as the State 
squad threatened only in the second 

Flyiit Nets Three 

Henry Flynt and Bill Brewer took care 
of all the scoring with Brewer breaking the 
ice midway in the first period. Flynt 
tallied three of the Purple points, getting 
one in the second period and two In the 
fourth. Brewer's other goal also came in 
the big fourth quarter. 

CJordon Cictsinger starred at fullback, 
teaming |with Captain Larry Thompson, 
halfback, to pace a coordinated defense. 
Cory Wickersham stood out on the line. 

The hooters returned from \acation a 
day early to meet R. P. I. here last Satur- 
day and were outclassed, 4-0. Well 
stocked with skilled ball handlers from 
South American and Mexican ranks, the 
R. P. 1. sciuad played aggressive soccer 
and backed by Schultz, ace goalie, 
squelched the Williams attack.

"The greatest rise of any team from the 
1941 weekly stands is credited to Williams 
College, which has risen far above its New 
England rivals of the past to join i he major 
elevens of the Eastern area." This is the 
first comment theWilliamsteani hasreceiv- 
ed in the weekly ratings report of the Lam- 
bert Trophy Committee, representatives 
of supremacy in Eastern football circles. 

Of the .seventy-four colleges rated in the 
report, Williams stood in fifteenth place 
above such teams as Columbia, Penn. 
State, Cornell, Navy, Yale, Lafayette, 
Rutgers, Holy Cross, Princeton, and the 
Little Three's Amherst and Wesleyan. 
Amherst placed thirtieth, with Wesleyan

Shortly after his graduation from Wil- 
liams in I9.i7, (Juthrie began to teach at 
l.ingnan. By the time war had broken 
out between the Inited Nations and 
Japan, the university had been removed to 
Hong Kong from othei areas already 
ile\astated by war. When Hong Kong 
was attacked by the Japanese, Guthrie 
immediately joined a Home (Juard known 
as the "Hong Kong N'oluntcers." He 
could have sought safety as a civilian, but 
he iireferred to take his chances with the 
British troops. 

Ill a letter to the Alumni Office, 
Harold C. Kose, :i close friend of 
(julhrie's, wrote, "He has since been, as 
far as we know, interned as a prisoner of 
war and is believed still to lie in Hong 
Kong. This was eiinfirnied when the 
Gripslwim came in :ind we personally talk- 
ed to Guthrie's ex-roonimale, a member of 
the Lingnan staff." 

Even after the seige of Hong Kmig was 
ended, Guthrie might have returned to the 
Inited Stall's in civilian status, but he 
chose to sta\ at his post. B\- refusing to 
throw asi<le his fighting eiiniiimenl and 
thus again becoming :i civilian, Guthrie 
voluntarily gave up his clianee to return 
to the I'nited Stales on the Gripshobn.
